Another prerequisite that must be accumulated before enrolling into the 40 Hour 40 Hour Hazwoper Safety Training Course comes in the form of an independent 40 hours of initial training. Not to be confused with the 40 hours that are required for the safety training course itself, these 40 hours will have to be under a trained and seasoned supervisor in the field of hazardous waste and toxic cleanup efforts. The most preferred and popular method for achieving and fulfilling this early requirement is through the students employer or even the potential employer who is apt to want to at least help defray the cost of all the training and OSHA related compliance.
