This program, Training for Hazardous Materials Response: Technician has been developed by the International Fire Service Training Association (IFSTA). This course is intended for personnel who may respond to and mitigate an incident involving hazardous materials. Course participants should be competent in the subject matter covered in the IFSTA programs, Hazardous Materials Training for First Responders. They should also be familiar with the skills described in the National Fire Protection Association(NFPA) Standard for Professional Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials (NFPA 472) and OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120. Specifically, participants are expected to be knowledgeable in the recognition and identification of hazardous materials, the U.S. Department of Transportation hazardous materials classes, and the use of breathing apparatus and turnout gear.

This program was developed with the understanding that the course does not constitute the comprehensive training necessary for the safe control of all hazardous materials incidents. In addition to the materials presented in this course, participants are expected to receive additional training in department-specific procedures, field work, and use of equipment before they are qualified to handle specific situations. While we believe all of the information contained herein to be accurate and timely, we are in no way prescribing this information as the final authority in technical response to hazardous materials incidents. Where there are discrepancies between the material presented in this program and local policies and procedures, those of your own jurisdiction will take precedence.
