Course Description

The IICRC-approved Health and Safety Technician (HST) course focuses on providing comprehensive occupational or workplace health and safety training for any industry sectors employing mobile service technicians. Unlike the majority of excellent health and safety courses around that tend to focus on the construction or manufacturing sectors, this course focuses on service industries using hazardous chemicals and that are predominantly mobile. It deals with international health and safety law and the Global Harmonised System (vital for product labels and Safety Data Sheets) which are not covered by most programs, as well as all the usual hazard issues around pathogens, slippery floors, working at heights, energy, etc. This course is specific to the Australian and New Zealand markets. This course will enable the participant to obtain IICRC HST certification.

The HST course is suitable for any existing IICRC registrants who want to gain their IICRC Master designation in Cleaning or Restoration, and any individual who would like to become a health and safety representative in their company to meet the requirements of either Australian or New Zealand health and safety legislation. If you work in cleaning, restoration, hazardous substance decontamination, pest control or other specialist sectors, this is the best course for you, whether you are in management, logistics or out on the road.

The Coach8 HST course can be conducted onsite or online. The onsite in-person course is held over a 2-day period. The online livestream course is conducted for 4 hours per day over a 3-day period.

Participants earn 14 IICRC Continuing Education Credits (CECs) for attending this course.

Lunches and snacks are provided by Coach8, except when the course is conducted online.

Please read our Terms and Conditions page for information about payment, cancellations and substitutions.

Examinations and Certification

To receive your certification, you must pass an IICRC examination. If you intend to complete the exam, you must complete a separate exam registration process, which will be provided after registering for the course. Exams for onsite in-person courses are generally held in the classroom after lunch on the final day of the course. Exams for online livestream courses have different arrangements.

Coach8 course registration fees do NOT include IICRC exam registration fees. Exam fees are paid directly to the IICRC separately. The IICRC exam fee for this course is currently $80 USD, but you can check the IICRC website to ensure that fee is still correct.
