H2S Awareness Training Course

If you find yourself dealing with hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and are looking to enroll in a training course, you won’t find a better place than the H2S Online Training Center. We care about your safety and are committed to optimizeing our programs to meet your needs. H2S is an incredibly dangerous chemical, and exposure can cause death in a matter of moments. Because of the hazards associated with H2S, H2S Safety cannot be and should not be taken lightly. As with any hazard in the work environment, the first step in protecting yourself and those around you is understanding the hazards, and how to safely work around them when they cannot be eliminated. We typically accomplish this educational process through H2S Training. This H2S Training Awareness Course is an H2S Safety Course designed for professionals that work regularly in areas where dangerous levels of H2S may be present. This H2S Training course helps fulfill the training requirements of ANSI Z390.1, AP Recommended Practice 49, and the OSHA General Duty clause. This H2S Training Course is good for a period of one year, at which time you will be required to take an H2S re-certification training course to stay current on industry best practices, and any changes in guidelines. This Course comes with an H2S Certification Wallet Card.

H2S Awareness Recertification Course

People tend to forget things. It’s not a big deal when you fail to remember some algebra formulas or the principles of the Higgs field or anything else you learned at school and have never used. But it is definitely not that case when it comes to life-threatening situations and knowledge that might save your life or the life of your colleague. If the accidental release of hazardous gases (such as hydrogen sulfide) occurs, and you’re all at sea about how to act in an emergency, your negligence can lead to tragic consequences and cost you a lot. To minimize the risk of unwanted knowledge gaps, we run an H2S Awareness Recertification course that comes with the one-year certification period.

This course aims to foster H2S knowledge and make learning stick so that all students are aware of how to deal with hydrogen sulfide. It is a refresher program designed for those who have already completed an H2S Awareness Training course before, and whose certification period is over. It helps students prevent lapses, retain knowledge, and be adequately informed of the latest guideline changes and OSHA safety recommendations on the operations involving H2S. What is more, our H2S Awareness Recertification course is necessary to meet all the standards of the OSHA General Duty Clause, ANSI Z390.1, and API RP 49.

The H2S Awareness Recertification course is available online, too. This means you can take it from the comfort of your home, at the office, or even on your way. Thanks to the latest updates in our training system, we can deliver this course almost to any device, offering you the highest level of learning convenience.

Since it is intended to fill students’ knowledge gaps, the H2S Awareness Recertification course covers the same range of topics as that in the H2S Awareness one. Besides, it comes with a certification wallet card, as well.

Basic H2S Training Course

Whereas the H2S Awareness Training and H2S Awareness Recertification courses are designed for personnel looking to get qualified to work in the areas involving the use of hydrogen sulfide, the Basic H2S Training course is suitable for all, notwithstanding their occupation. It is aimed at expanding your horizons by contributing to your knowledge on such a hazardous gas as H2S. Even though you will not be qualified to handle the H2S-related operations upon the completion of this course, it is of paramount importance to take it to find out more about the gas and how it can affect you and those around you.

Because its materials are only for educational purposes, it should be noted that the Basic H2S Training course doesn’t address the topics related to how to respond to H2S emergency situations, how to ensure the compliance with the latest safety standards, or what equipment one needs to use to reduce the risk of getting injured at work. Neither does it comes with a certification wallet card, unlike two previous courses. This one strengthens the student’s knowledge on the basic properties of hydrogen sulfide and what perils are associated with this gas. It provides you with the general information on H2S in an understandable point-by-point manner.

If you feel like you’re in the dark about hydrogen sulfide, our Basic H2S Training course will be perfect for you. Like all our courses, it is delivered online and encompasses all the benefits of web-based classes, including convenience, efficiency, and everything in between. Once you sign in, you will be able to take it wherever and whenever you want throughout the period of 180 days.

Whether you’re using an Android or iOS device, rest easy knowing that our Basic H2S Training course is accessible. So, why not increase your knowledge without attending brick-and-mortar classes and paying double? Enroll now and be sure to complete this course using your smartphone in a matter of hours!
