Hazardous Materials Outreach Training Program

Picture of HazMat crew​Cal OES/ CSTI manage a very successful Hazmat outreach training program which includes 1,201 courses last year and 22,057 persons trained. Most of our Hazmat courses have received Department of Homeland Security approval for the use of Homeland Security Grant Funds.

CSTI Outreach Instructors have successfully completed training in the Institute’s Instructor Certification Course. Outreach Instructors deliver hundreds of courses per year to thousands of first responders in municipal and governmental organizations, private industry, and the military. From First Responder Awareness to Hazardous Materials Specialist, students acquire the skills needed to save lives and protect both the environment and property.
