NOTE: Why doesn’t ETC offer 40- hour HAZWOPER online? Read on!
In an interpretation letter dated August 16, 2004, OSHA states that “equally important is the use of hands-on experience and exercises to provide trainees with an opportunity to become familiar with equipment and safe practices in a non-hazardous setting.”
The actual requirements for a 40-hour course are classroom instruction plus three days of supervised field experience. Some training providers may tell you that in those three days of supervised field experience workers can receive their hands-on training. However, in the same interpretation letter, when asked if this is acceptable, OSHA replies: “No. Supervised field experience is part of an employee’s initial training, taking place after he or she has completed the off-site classroom instruction.”
This hands-on requirement is in addition to the three days of supervised field experience workers are required to complete after the 40-hour classroom training.
