Retake 40 Hour HAZWOPER

by Toni
(Bossier City, LA)

I wanted to know if I am required to retake the 40 Hour HAZWOPER.

I took the 40 hour HAZWOPER course in 2003, it was given in a class setting by a professor from a college in Lubbock, TX.

I was at Ft. Polk, LA taking it as a civilian along with a group of Active Army personnel. I was the Valedictorian. I have not taken any refresher course since that time.

Would I have to retake the entire 40 hour course or just a refresher since it is now 2012?

Do You Have to Retake the 40 Hour HAZWOPER
by: Steve Cassidy

Do You Have to Retake the 40 Hour HAZWOPER? If you have taken the initial 40 Hour and have the certificate to prove it, you do not need to repeat the course.

HAZWOPER Refresher is only $39.95!

This is where the Sea Lawyers jump in and start screaming that you do. Here's why you don't:

Know one really cares. I've been on jobs for years and have successfully completed many audits where they actually check HAZWOPER certifications.

The auditor asks for the initial 40 Hour HAZWOPER and the most current 8 Hour Refresher. They don't look for the all the previous years' certificates to look for gaps.

If you cannot find your 40 Hour HAZWOPER certificate, then you're kind of screwed if the company you took it with can't find it.

You'll need to retake it. If that's the case, don't sit through another class, take it with us at Globally Employable and Training Center Pros, you'll always be able to have a backup copy on file with us.

Thanks for the info Steve! I do still have my certificate (and it even has Valedictorian perfect 100% score printed on it so I think that will be an added bonus). I'm so glad I only have to take the refresher course.
