HMO Study Guide

The "Hazardous Materials Responder Voluntary Certification Program" was created by HB89-1223 which was enacted effective July 1, 1989. The general purpose of the certification program is to measure the level of knowledge, skills and abilities possessed by responders to hazardous materials incidents and to attest that these individuals meet nationally recognized standards. These competency based standards permit evaluation of training programs and promote uniformity in hazardous materials responder training.
