1.  What experience does Daniels Training Services have?: I am the Owner and Training Services Provider for Daniels Training Services. I have over twenty years of experience with the EPA hazardous waste and the DOT HazMat Employee regulations. As an employee of Laidlaw Environmental Services, I was subject to these regulations on a daily basis and received regular training as aHazMat Employee and Hazardous Waste Personnel. As an employee of Fehr-Graham and Associates, it was my responsibility to provide consulting and training services on a wide range of subjects to a variety of industrial facilities.

2.  What is the advantage to combining training (RCRA Personnel and DOT HazMat Employee) in one session?: Though separate regulatory requirements from distinct agencies, both share significant overlap in the requirements for on-site handling of hazardous materials/wastes and off-site shipments of same. In many cases, employees who require RCRA Personnel training also require DOT HazMat Employee training. Combining the training reduces time wasted in redundancies and facilitates in-depth understanding of how the regulations interrelate.

3.  Should I take a web-based course?: Web-based training is usually less expensive and requires less travel than a public training event. However, I have found that the discussions and interaction between attendees and the trainer and even amongst trainees can be very valuable. I encourage questions and comments at all times during training events and make myself available during breaks and lunch for additional questions.

4.  How can I get the most bang for my buck (i.e. the most product for my training dollar)?: Send your facility’s EHS training director and any other employees with management responsibilities that include hazardous waste and/or the shipment of hazardous materials to a one-day training session that provides them with tools and information they can take back to their facility to ensure regulatory compliance and to create a site-specific training program for employees and contractors.

5.  What if I have several employees that I wish to have trained?: Daniels Training Services offers discounts for multiple attendees from the same facility. If you have four or more persons that require training, you may wish to consider an on-site training program specific to your facility. Contact us for more information.

6.  What are my payment options?: You can pay on-line; mail us a check; provide credit card information by phone, fax, mail or e-mail; or issue a company PO and we will invoice you. The on-line registration option cannot be used if you intend to issue a company PO. In that case, the registration form must be printed and submitted. Please contact us if you have any difficulty in making payment arrangements.

7.  Do I need to make my own hotel reservations? Are there discounts for attending?: All travel and lodging arrangements must be made by training attendees.

8.  What do I need to bring to the workshop?:Extra pens, pencils, and paper are provided along with bound course manual. Please come prepared with questions.
