i wont to know about hazmat and how to learning this kind of hazmat
If you’re not an emergency responder, there are several methods available for you to gain hazardous materials training. Some options include local community college continuing education departments, local businesses offering these training programs, state emergency management agencies (check the “training” tab and note emergency responders will get priority attendance) and your employer may offer some type of hazardous materials training. An additional method to gain some information about haz mat training at no cost to you is using the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s free online training courses; the web address to view offerings is http://training.fema.gov/is/crslist.asp?page=all Please note this training can provide a way to earn a living. There are many companies around the US cleaning up hazardous materials after accidents; there are several haz mat classes required by both OSHA and/or EPA for companies performing this type of clean-up work.
Online radiation training courses are available at the FEMA site; additional opportunities may be found at your states emergency management agency website under the “training” section. If you are near a major interstate highway used by the US Department of Energy radioactive material shipping campaigns, courses near you may be found by contacting the DOE Transportation Emergency Preparedness Program contact for your region of the United States at http://www.em.doe.gov/TEPPPages/TEPPPOC.aspx Send the person listed in your region an email asking about training oppportunities in your state. DOE courses are offered free of charge.
