I am getting my,
OSHA 10hr for General Industry
40hr HAZWOPER (Hazardous Waste Operations & Emergency Response) as described by 29 CFR 1910.120 & 8 CCR Sec. 5129
FREE thru an ARRA grant giving to the community college's in California. Check with your local community colllege district they may also have this program on offer if they got ARRA money, or clean workforce investment act money or CEWTP funding.

Hope this helps.

Re: How To Get Osha Hazwoper Training?

Hey nice to know that you are interested in going for hazwoper training certification. i would suggest that you first read up about Osha Hazwoper FAO's which are available at osha government webstie

I did my osha hazwoper training at Hazmat Student.You can check them out and take a call. Also before making a decision, its pretty important to decide the the kind of training you want. In case you are time strapped, i would suggest an online training otherwise offline classes are the best option. Hope i helped. Cheersgl

You have some options here. Most people prefer to take it on-site, but some love the online aspect. Be aware though, if you take the HAZWOPER Training online, you must still take the donning, doffing and PPE sections with a hands on instructor.
