Hazmat train-the-trainer programs scheduled

The National Labor College in Silver Spring, Md., has scheduled several hazardous materials train-the-trainer programs to help build a nationwide pool of peer instructors.

Funded by the Department of Transportation, the train-the-trainer courses provide regional peer trainers with the skills and knowledge necessary to deliver this awareness level hazmat training at their job-sites, union meetings and in their communities.

An advanced instructor training course will be held in St. Louis, June 18-22.

Basic courses will be held July 16-21 and July 22-27 at the National Labor College campus in Silver Spring, Md.

These three courses may require participants to have completed other courses.
