OSHA requires (29 CFR 1910.120(q) and 1926.59(q)) that employees performing chemical emergency response must receive training commensurate with their duties. The Incident Commander has overall charge of the scene and works with the other persons there to achieve the response objectives. Their role is described more fully in the section on Emergency Response Team Organization.

This course is offered only to persons who can demonstrate that they have completed the HazMat Technician course at the Institute or elsewhere. Ideally Incident Commanders would take our HazMat Professionals course, but we offer this course for people who have been functioning as HazMat Technicians but whose employers want them to take on additional responsibilities.
