Before you handle HAZMAT, get the proper training from the National Guard Professional Education Center (NGPEC). NGPEC offers a course called HAZMAT Training for Non-Certifying Officials. It’s available to Active Army, Army Reserve and Army National Guard. The course number is 922-LTC-012-000018.
The course meets the legal and regulatory HAZMAT training requirements for all military drivers, co-drivers, handlers, inspectors and packers. It draws its material from several sources:
o Department of Transportation (DoT)
o Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
o Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
o Department of Defense (DoD)
o US Army Forces Command (FORSCOM)
o Army regulations
The course addresses DoT, OSHA and EPA HAZMAT training requirements. It is free from the GuardU training website:
The course does not meet the ammunition handler training requirements set forth in Chap 4 of National Guard Regulation 385-64, Army National Guard Ammunition and Explosives Safety Standards (Dec 07).
