This certification program is available at three levels:

Hazmat Operator .....24 hour (3 days)
Hazmat Technician #175. .40 hour (5 days)
The first two levels of this course are classroom based and the third level also incorporates practical hands-on scenarios. Each level builds on the previous level so if you take the 40 hour technician level, you have accomplished all three segments of the program.
Current U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) regulations require training (and retraining) of all employees who perform work functions covered by the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180). Any employee who works in a shipping, receiving or material handling area or who may be involved in preparing or transporting hazardous materials is required to have training.
