    Outcome Expectations:

    Instructors are prepared through a 10-day Train-the-Trainer Program called the GreatEST Institute (Great Environmental Safety Training Institute) to deliver required certifications for public and private responders and workers including:

    • 40-hour Waste Site Worker Health and Safety
    • 24-hour Industrial Emergency Response
    • DOT Haz Mat Awareness
    • Confined Space Non Entry Rescue
    • Hazard Awareness and Communication
    • Disaster Site Worker Awareness

    Instructors use CCCHST curriculum to train workers and responders in their local area and report to NPETE the number of courses they provide, for which they may be provided a small reimbursement. NPETE reports these numbers to NIEHS. CCCHST members may charge for the courses offered in their local area. Instructors reporting numbers must return every two years for Instructor Refresher training offered either at live conferences or through NPETE StayFreshers via zoom.
