Building a culture of safety starts with a well-trained workforce.  When you train with the NDSC, you get quality training from passionate instructors with real world experience that will resonate with your workers.



If you work around hazardous materials you NEED HAZWOPER Training. Reduce your risk with detailed training in:


Regulations, site characterization, hazard identification, monitoring safe work practices, site control, emergency response, personal protective equipment, and medical surveillance decontamination


We offer the following hands-on HAZWOPER Courses (click the title of the class to register for the class):
