Emergency Response Level 3 Initial Training
Emergency Response Technician – (Level 3) Instructor-Led Training:
The Emergency Response Technician Level III Training Seminar provides OSHA mandated training referenced under the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910.120(q). The course is developed for new and returning workers (such as those not meeting Annual Refresher requirements) and targets the “Initial” training needs of these workers before responding to incidents and spills.
Training delivered by seasoned Instructors with real-world response and EH&S experience. The training covers 18-different OSHA suggested topics such as: Health and Safety Procedures, PPE for Hazardous Waste Operations, Medical Monitoring, and more.
Instructors use traditional and advanced techniques used in today’s hazardous material industry to expose students to the hazards and risks involved in response to emerging and active incidents. Students develop crucial skills and techniques to recognize and mitigate hazards encountered during hazardous material spills through this course. Control and containment methods to ensure worker safety is the primary objective of this class.
Tuition includes a student manual, participation in table-top planning and preparation, and a mock response and clean-up exercise (to facilitate understanding of the Technician role). Students must pass a certification exam at the end of the course and will be issued a printed ER3 Certification (suitable for framing) and wallet ID card.
Why train with us?
Our Emergency Response Technician (Level 3) course is delivered over four (4) days alongside HAZWOPER students who learn control and containment along with actual remediation. As the Emergency Response Technician’s primary role is “control and containment,” this course provides the additional experience in what happens “after the spill is contained.”
Note: This course REQUIRES the employee to bring a copy of the company/agency’s Emergency Response Plan so the Instructor can review and discuss on-site safety and company-specific procedures (required by regulation). Please ensure a printed copy is available BEFORE registering for this class. Certification cannot be issued without meeting this crucial requirement.
