Hi Steven!

If I remember correctly the rules have changed for online HazMat Classes. I think that the competencies now read that you have to have hands on training. That was the last update from the University that I teach HazMat for was about. However, I think online HazMat classes would be an excellent tool for firefighters to use on a daily training objective.
