Course Description

The Standardized Awareness Training course provides a basic awareness of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive (CBRNE) hazards; how to use
the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG); and how to prepare individuals to lessen further injuries or property losses. Awareness-level training does not certify a responder to perform ongoing operations at an incident.

This course focuses on training responders to meet the requirements established in Chapter 4 “Competencies for hazardous Materials/WMD Awareness Level Personnel (NFPA 472)” and Chapter 5 “Professional Qualifications for Hazardous Materials/WMD Awareness Level Personnel (NFPA 1072)” of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 470, Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Standard for Responders (2022 edition). This course also
covers Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response, 29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) §1910.120(q)(6)(i), and the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP), NIPP 2013: Partnering for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience.
