Hazardous Materials Management Skill Standard. Final Project Report.
Center for Occupational Research and Development, Inc., Waco, Tex.
This document begins with a brief report describing how the Center for Occupational Research and Development (CORD) organized a coalition of organizations related to the hazardous materials industry to identify required skills and training for Hazardous Materials Management Technician (HMMT). CORD staff established a committee of employers, representatives from labor organizations and associations, vocational educators, and others to write the skill standard. The committee identified required competencies for technicians in the industry; determined knowledge, tools, and training necessary for certification; compared certified to noncertified employers; established instructional qualifications; and developed a method for assessing and updating the skill standard as technology changes. During phase 2, the standard was validated and disseminated, certification requirements were determined, and an implementation guide was developed. The 14-page report is followed by the following: skills and validation surveys and responses; meeting information; lists of advisory committee members and business/industry and education representatives; marketing and publicity materials; newsletters; articles; database of those to whom the standard was disseminated; sample presentations made at site visits, conferences, and meetings; correspondence; educational survey and final report; business/industry questionnaire; workshop materials; project facts and general information; remediation; revisions; and information on other related projects.
