Course Description

This course utilizes both classroom lecture and field exercises to meet or exceed the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1072 Hazardous Materials / WMD Emergency Response Personnel Professional QualificationsChapter 6.3 “Mass Decontamination” and Chapter 6.4 “Technical Decontamination” and Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.120(k) for Decontamination procedures.

Upon completion of this course you are eligible to take the National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifications (Pro Board) written exam and skills testing and obtain two separate certifications for Chapter 6.3 and Chapter 6.4.


Participants pursuing Pro Board certification must provide proof of NFPA 1072 Operations or NFPA 472 Competencies for Operations Level Personnel (2002, 2008, or 2013 editions) dated prior to the last day of class. The documentation must meet the certification office requirements.

Course Completion Requirements

  • For field exercise, participants must provide National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1971
    compliant PPE that meets the Level 2 requirements in the ESTI Student Safety Manual. Any gear found to be unsafe or not NFPA compliant will not be allowed on the field. The PPE includes: safety glasses, gloves, hard hat, and safety-toed boots.
  • Participants are required to participate in hands-on activities utilizing Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) and therefore must be clean shaven while attending class. Facial hair must not be present where the SCBA mask seal contacts the
    skin. Mustaches and normal sideburns are permitted.
  • For classroom activities, participants must wear full length pants, closed-toe shoes, and short sleeve / long sleeve shirts (no sleeveless shirts).
  • Participants are required to provide a photo ID at time of Pro Board testing.

Attendance Requirements

Class attendance is an essential part of the
education process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all
class sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend
100% of the class hours as a component of successful course completion and to
sit for the Pro Board certification exam.

Due to the strenuous nature of class
activities, participants should secure a professional evaluation of their
physical condition prior to enrolling in this course.


    Suggested Audience

    Personnel who respond to emergencies involving hazardous materials/weapons of mass destruction for the purpose of protecting nearby persons, the environment, or property from the effects of the release.
