I think it might be of interest to understand OSHA's position on online or computer based training for satisfying HAZWOPER training requirements from there letter on interpretation :

"In OSHA's view, self-paced, interactive computer-based training can serve as a valuable training tool in the context of an over-all HAZWOPER training program. However, use of computer-based training by itself would not be sufficient to meet the intent of the standard's various training requirements. OSHA urges employers to be wary of relying solely on generic "packaged" training programs in meeting their training requirements since training required under HAZWOPER includes site-specific elements which need to be tailored to the individual worker's assigned duties"

The rest of this letter of interpretation can be found at

Has anyone attended a really good 8 hour HAZWOPER refresher course or did one online that you would reccomend? I'm interested in finding a class/instructor that goes beyond "checking the requirement box".
