  • Our University is currently working on a on-line presentation of the 29 CFR 1910.1200 Hazardous Materials “Specialist” course as it was originally intended! Stay tuned to my below website for future details!

    Professor Schunk:

    Thank you for stopping by the website. It’s always nice to read a comment from those working or interested in emergency services work.

    The DOE Rad Specialist course was developed using the requirements in Section G of NFPA 472. The requirements in this section are very specific. The OSHA 1910.120 HAZWOPER standard specifies Specialists exist; hwoever, there isn’t much in the standard that helps course designers present the topics necessary to meet the Specialist designation.

    When your program is nearing completion or ready, might you stop back by and let us know? I’d be interested in interviewing you to learn how the materials were decided upon and developed. Also, I’d like to learn more about how Universities are presenting learning programs traditionally thought of as “hands on”.

    Thanks for your time! I will be a regular visitor at your website.

    I have taken this course recently, and I would highly recommend it to any and all who can attend. If you are anywhere near ABQ, talk to your chief, your director, or your boss to let you participate in this course. Will not give any spoilers away here, but I would pay money to take this course, and here it’s being offered for free!

    I look forward to being able to use the knowledge this course has given me in the future.

    It’s very hard for me not to put all the spoilers out there. Just do yourself a favor and sign up for the course!

    RickyBobby, thank you for the thread response. I agree, this course is highly recommended for haz mat members responsible for haz mat safety. Additionally, the materials would be helpful for advanced haz mat responders. It should be noted anyone attending this class should have prior radiation training. To gain the most from the program, the prior class needs to have covered radiation basics, biological effects, and use of radiation instrumentation.

    Glad you enjoyed the course and will be applying the newfound knowledge and skills.
