Hazardous Waste Worker Training (HWWT)

The goal of the Community College Consortium for Health and Safety Training is to make NIEHS-approved worker training nationally available through over 100 CCCHST organizations, whose instructors are prepared through a Train-the-Trainer model program, offering hazardous materials instruction in nearly all states of the nation. CCCHST instructors, prepared and supported by NPETE and HMTRI, annually train a minimum 50,000 students, workers, and supervisors to protect themselves and their communities from exposure to hazardous materials encountered during hazardous waste site cleanup, brownfields redevelopment, transportation of hazardous materials, and response to spills and releases of hazardous materials, offering a minimum 300,000 contact hours of instruction each year.

Types of training offered:

  • OSHA Safety Training
  • HazMat Transportation Training
