UXO Tech Level Requirements
by: Steve Cassidy

Great question, Joe! There are specific training requirements for UXO Tech levels and positions. This comes straight from the DDESB, the Department of Defense Explosive Safety Board.

UXO Technician Level I - Successfully completed formal course of instruction or EOD assistant courses. Must have completed the 40 Hour HAZWOPER Training certification. Zero years of experience required.

UXO Technician Level II - 3 years experience in munitions response /range clearance operations as appropriate for the contracted operation, plus specific project/explosives safety training or military EOD experience. Must have 8 Hour HAZWOPER Refresher Certification.

UXO Technician Level III - 8 years prior military EOD and/or commercial UXO experience in munitions response actions or range clearance activities, as appropriate for the contracted operation, updated 8 Hour HAZWOPER certification.

Senior UXO Supervisor (SUXOS) - 10 years significant experience in all aspects of munitions response actions or range clearance activities, as appropriate for the contracted operation. Five years experience in supervisory positions. Upated HAZWOPER. I also recommend HAZWOPER Supervisor.

UXO Quality Control Specialist (QC) - 8 years experience in all phases of munitions response actions or range clearance activities, as appropriate for the contracted operation, and the transportation, handling and storage of munitions and commercial explosives.

UXO Safety Officer - 8 years experience in all phases of munitions response actions or range clearance activities, as appropriate for the contracted operation, and applicable safety standards.

Most of the time Safety and QC are combined into one position.

So there you have it. If you hear of something different from the above it's probably wrong. Your last word should rest with the DDESB.

If you have a question or two, please feel free to use this venue or the "Contact Me" page.
