“As a result of your refresher course onsite we learned the importance of organizing a team during chaos. We learned the command structure to use in spill response. We have applied the training to respond to an acid leak. Thank you for all you do to keep us safe!”

“The training we receive from the University of Minnesota helps to ensure our goal of employee and facility safety is met. As a result of the training provided, we have established our own outreach program to the hazmat community in Minnesota; we would not have this otherwise.”

“The instructors are knowledgeable and combine this with their own experiences to make for a course that those attending participate in. Being able to attend a course that includes individuals from other fields brings in their experiences is a huge bonus.”
