Who Should Take This Class?

Anyone who works around hazardous wastes must have training related to their job function. Do you manage hazardous waste at your site?  Do you handle hazardous waste? Do you package, mark, or label hazardous waste? Do you store hazardous waste on site? Do you inspect hazardous waste storage areas? Do you fill out or sign hazardous waste manifests? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then our hazardous waste generator training is for you.

Our California Title 22 hazardous waste generator course is intended for professionals who identify, store and dispose of hazardous wastes, including people who interpret regulations and develop hazardous waste policies and procedures. Although primarily targeted at hazardous waste generators, the course may also prove useful for contractors, corporate attorneys, waste brokers and others who are indirectly involved with activities involving hazardous waste.

Please note that this course is designed to fulfill the requirements for hazardous waste generators in the state of California only. If you are a generator in a different state, your requirements are different and you will need to take the RCRA #1391 course instead.

Industries That Require This Course

Hazardous waste is defined as waste with properties that make it potentially dangerous to the environment or human health. A number of industries produce hazardous waste as byproduct, including chemical manufacturing, metal fabrication and production, petroleum processing, mining and more. Any industry that produces hazardous waste or acts in a way that makes hazardous waste subject to regulation is considered a generator and requires CA hazardous waste generator certification.

Industries that may require our hazardous waste generator course can be divided into two groups:

  • Large quantity generators (LQGs): These operations generate at least 1,000 kilograms of hazardous waste per month or more than one kilogram of acutely hazardous waste per month.
  • Small quantity generators (SQGs): Every month, these generators produce an amount of hazardous waste less than the threshold for large quantity generators. It’s important to note that California does not exempt very small quantity generators like the federal government does. This means you may still need certification for California hazardous waste generation even if you generate less than 100 kilograms per month.

What Regulations Does This Course Satisfy?

California has unique regulations for hazardous waste generators. These regulations include but significantly exceed federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations. California also classifies some substances as hazardous materials that the federal government does not. As a result, generators in California require additional training to remain in compliance.

Our online Title 22 Hazardous Waste Generator certification course provides training for the handling of hazardous waste in the state of California according to the California Department of Toxic Substances regulations found in Title 22 CCR 66262.34 and Title 22 CCR 66265.16.  Taking our online course also satisfies the California Title 22 Hazardous Waste Generator annual refresher training requirement.

Our California hazardous waste training course meets all the criteria for certification outlined in Title 22. When you enroll in this course, you can expect to learn about different hazardous waste regulations, different classes of generators and safety considerations for the accumulation of hazardous waste. You will also learn how to recognize and fill out a Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest.

All of the information and skills you acquire will prepare you to comply with hazardous waste regulations in California, whether you already work for a generator or are searching for employment.
