This course will focus on the knowledge and skills required of the Hazardous Materials Group Supervisor and the Hazardous Materials Assistant Safety Officer. It will cover the educational competencies outlined in NFPA 1072 Chapter 11 Hazardous Materials Branch Director/Group Supervisor and Chapter 12 Hazardous Materials Branch Safety Officers.

The Hazardous Materials Group Supervisor is the person responsible for directing and coordinating all operations assigned to the hazardous materials branch by the Incident Commander.
