There are tens of thousands of chemicals in the world. Some are harmless, some can eradicate entire cities.  Learning to identify and mitigate dangerous situations is the focus of our hazmat training.

The training Ronin provides in hazardous materials, whether it be Industrial spill response or NFPA Technician with CBRN capabilities, is taught by our professional hazardous materials personnel.

Our instructors are trained to the highest levels and have real world experience working for emergency response and military organizations. Our instructors have responded to real world events where swift, accurate identification and mitigation is required. Allow us to pass our relevant knowledge and experience in hazardous materials onto you and your team.

This course focuses on recognition of a hazardous emergency, personnel safety, limitations of nonhazmat
personnel, hazard assessment, and the notification of the emergency response team using
safe, practical, defensive actions all of which are critical components required when dealing with a
hazardous situation. These skills are paramount for any person who will be operating around
hazardous materials. Techniques learned are practiced in field exercises. This course meets the
training requirements for National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) 472 Hazardous Materials
Awareness Level.
At the end of this highly interactive training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand expectations of Hazmat trained personnel
  • Analyze a hazardous materials incident
  • Survey a hazmat incident
  • Collect hazard information
  • Implement a planned response
  • Initiate protective actions
  • Initiate notification procedures

 

HAZMAT Operations Training

Course Duration: Instructed in English – 4 days;
Instructed in translation – 8 days
Course Format: Classroom and practical exercises
Certification: Certificate of Attendance upon successful completion
Pre-requisites: Hazardous materials awareness level

This course is a necessity for employees of industries who manufacture, transport or store chemicals
or other hazardous materials as well as fire and police personnel who respond to hazardous materials
incidents including spills or drug labs. Through lectures, classroom and field exercises, students learn
techniques to recognize, identify and assess degrees of risk involved with hazardous materials and
their containers, appropriate safety precautions, selection of appropriate personal protective
clothing, safe defensive control techniques to protect people, the environment and property,
implementation of the Incident Command System (ICS) and Emergency Scene Management and an
introduction to monitoring and detection equipment. Through field scenarios, students employ
classroom learning to respond to simulated incidents wearing all appropriate protective equipment
and successfully demonstrate response management, and establishment of decontamination areas
and procedures. This course meets the training requirements for National Fire Protection Agency
(NFPA) 472 Hazardous Materials Operations Level.
At the end of this highly interactive training, participants will be able to:

  • Apply the incident command system to a hazmat incident
  • Implement the 8 step process
  • Demonstrate site management and control
  • Gather information during a hazmat scenario
  • Implement hazard and risk evaluation
  • Select protective clothing and equipment
  • Develop and implement the Incident Action Plan (I.A.P.)
  • Perform decontamination and clean up

 

HAZMAT Technician Training

Course Duration: Instructed in English – 6 days;
