The Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Instructor Development course provides qualified candidate instructors with crucial knowledge surrounding the delivery of H2S training. During training participants not only receive delivery techniques from seasoned professionals, each is provided with updated technical information as well. Once training is completed, candidate instructors will have the ability to explain the hazards associated with H2S and describe how federal and state H2S regulatory standards along with other established industry criteria link together to reduce the potential of exposure and risks involved with H2S. Candidate instructors will also practice the delivery of assigned sections during class covering various areas of expertise to include, petroleum and natural gas industries, utilities, research and development, laboratories, transportation, paper/pulp/food processing, chemical manufacturing, leather tanning, waste disposal.
