Sorry it has taken me so long to return your comment. I agree with your statement, CERTIFICATION WILL GET YOU FAR IN LIFE. Unfortunately, if you are not qualified........certified will get you straight to the end of your life.
I don't believe it is that simple. To say that certification is more important, is to say that all who are certified are competent and I'm sure you don't truly feel that way. Yes, I agree it is important to be duly certified, however that alone does not make one equipped to handle the incident. It merely proves they met the objectives of a given course, and I stress the word GIVEN. Often they are not earned.
Welcome to the greatest training site in the WORLD! FE did it again didn't they, what a wonderful way to learn and grow from each other. Feel free to take a look at the second HazMat Group called HazMat News and Training. We would love to hear the input from young and old. Todd McKee
