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.

TEEX and the OSHA Training Institute (OTI) have an attendance policy that requires participants to fully attend an enrolled class in its entirety (100% of the course). We realize that extenuating circumstances may arise that would take a participant out of class and have a policy to handle those situations. If a participant misses less than 20% of the class, he/she may be able to perform makeup work equivalent to the class time missed. If 20% or more of the class is missed, the participant may attend a makeup course upon approval by TEEX’s OTI Education Center Director.
