Rail hazmat ''''train the trainer'''' courses planned for 2014

CLEVELAND, August 26 — The Rail Workers Hazardous Materials Training Program plans to offer three "train the trainer" workshops this year. The program prides itself on providing the most valuable worker safety training available, and these “train the trainer” classes are widely popular and successful because most of the course curriculum is delivered by peer trainers.

All dates are tentative, pending final funding approval.

A major goal of the Program is to build a nationwide pool of skilled peer trainers to deliver hazardous materials training at their jobsites, union meetings, and in their communities. The DOT-funded Hazardous Materials Instructor Training (HMIT) consists of an 8-hour hazardous materials awareness course followed by five days of train-the-trainer instruction, providing participants the skills and knowledge necessary to deliver hazardous materials training at the local and regional levels.

The funding provides the following student expenses: Air travel, lodging and meals. In addition, an incentive of $175 per day is available to all training participants of these programs, except those who are able to secure regular pay through their employer, or are paid union officers. Training will be conducted at: Holiday Inn Houston-Hobby Airport, 8611 Airport Blvd, Houston, TX, 77061.

Programs begin Monday mornings and conclude Saturdays at 1 p.m. Students will be required to travel/arrive on Sundays to meet program start times. When registering, please select dates in order of preference:

• September 29 through October 4, 2014
• October 12 through 18, 2014
• November 16 through 22, 2014

Register online at: www.rwhmtp.org/Training.asp; or you may request an application by contacting Henry Jajuga at: hjajuga@rwhmtp.org.

For additional information please contact Henry Jajuga via e-mail. For phone inquiries please call (281) 812-6436, Monday through Friday between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. CST.
