Course Description

Emphasis is placed on the following topics: health and safety requirements, including the donning and doffing of personal protective equipment and creating a hazard assessment of the area; structural remediation; contents remediation; and the cleaning and disposal of vehicles and industrial machinery, including lockout/tagout and working with industrial site officers.

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.
