This curriculum guide represents the first level of a training program for hazardous materials responders. Developed as part of Arizona's certification program for hazardous materials personnel, the training is designed for emergency response personnel (fire and police), industry personnel, and emergency medical personnel. This book is divided into three parts. Part 1 contains the instructor guides for the eight-hour training. A list of the competencies/skills and tasks appears first.

Each lesson plan includes a brief activities outline, student objectives, content outline, slide masters, handouts, related sections of the student outline, and related test questions.
