Our FCSS Instructors are NFPA Certified Fire Service Instructors & HazMat Technicians with extensive real-world HazMat Technician experience in the hot zone.

This 40-hour Hazardous Materials Technician (HMT) course, based on NFPA® 1072: Standard for Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Emergency Response Personnel Professional Qualifications and NFPA® 472 standards, provides participants with HazMat-specific response knowledge and skills, enabling them to respond safely and effectively to a suspected incident at the hazardous materials technician level. Participants receive hands-on training in donning and doffing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Levels A and B, containing leaks and drum over-packing, containing leaks in pressurized containers, and performing technical and mass decontamination. The HMT course culminates with performance of these offensive-level tasks in an activity in which the participants apply the knowledge and skills learned in a simulated HazMat environment. Additionally, the proprietary RAPID HazMat concept of incident management will be delivered.

This program will focus on delivering the cognitive and psychomotor skills necessary to meet the required objectives. The student will be provided with the text and will have to complete homework assignments (reading and tests). The student will have to stay current with the homework assignments and maintain a passing grade for all chapters to be eligible to take the CFA exam.

Graduates have the opportunity to take the National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (Pro Board)
through the Connecticut Fire Academy with the prerequisites of ProBoard or IFSAC Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations certifications.

Students that do not have the prerequisites can take the program and upon successful completion will satisfy the OSHA standard 29CFR1910.120(q)(6)(iii).

All students shall be fit tested and medically cleared to wear a respirator and perform the skills of a hazardous materials technician.

Duration: 40 Hours
