    The 4 ½ day course covers topics that may be present on RETA’s CIRO exam.

    At the end of the course, students will receive a certificate upon passing the exam. They also have the option to sit for the RETA CIRO examination.

    Ammonia Refrigeration and HAZWOPER Combo course - Sept. 2018

    Students took part in our Ammonia Refrigeration and HAZWOPER Combo course this week! This course should be considered a minimum requirement for entry level industrial refrigeration operators, decision makers involved or personnel involved in PSM/RMP and those who respond to ammonia releases.

    Pictured is HAZWOPER 8. This refresher course is for those who have completed the 24 hour Hazardous Materials Technician Training and would like classroom instruction and hands-on drills.

    On Friday, they simulated an ammonia leak and suited up to respond to and fix the hazard. Check out the photos of students solving the situation!
