How long is the certification good for?

Hazwoper refresher training is required every 12 months.

If the date for refresher training has lapsed, the need to repeat initial training must be determined based on the employee's familiarity with safety and health procedures used on site. The employee should take the next available refresher training course. In addition OSHA states that “there should be a record in the employee's file indicating why the training has been delayed and when the training will be completed."
