This course will review the physical properties of Ammonia, its hazards, the use of appropriate Personal Protective Equipment, and typical storage. The live training will include entry into a live agent release and control of a leak. Not often do hazmat technicians get a chance to train in a live agent environment. This training is invaluable, important, and will meet the requirements for all hazmat teams. This training also qualifies for an 8-hour refresher for Hazardous Materials Technicians.
The textbook is provided at no cost to the student by the program.
All necessary Personal Protective Equipment for this course will be provided. Medical monitoring will be performed as needed prior to any training field activities. Medical monitoring must show a student’s blood pressure to be below the NFPA 1582 Stage 2 Hypertension standard (i.e., systolic pressure greater than or equal to 160 mm Hg or diastolic pressure greater than or equal to 100 mm Hg). Students who cannot meet this standard will not be allowed to participate in training field activities that are required to complete the course.
