New TDEM HazMat Course Registration Period
The Technological Hazards Unit utilizes a fixed course registration period to create the upcoming fiscal year’s training calendar. The registration period opens July 1st at 8:00 am (CDT), during which agencies are permitted to submit requests for courses for the upcoming fiscal year. The registration period will remain open until September 30th at 5:00 pm (CDT).
Please note: Not all course requests submitted will be approved for funding.
Courses will continue to be scheduled during this period until all the funding has been allocated. At that time all pending course requests will be moved to the waitlist.
All agencies are strongly encouraged to review the FAQ page as our procedures during the course scheduling process has been updated. Also, agencies are encouraged to review the TDEM HazMat course catalog before submitting their course request to ensure they have access to the required facilities and classroom space required for the course.
Agencies are responsible for the accuracy of the information on their course registration.
Please note: Any course request submitted after the period closes will be placed on the waiting list in the order that it was received. The Technological Hazards Unit will not accept any course requests submitted before the designated start time of the course registration period.
It is our hope to continue releasing additional videos, job aids and webinars to you in the future. As these projects are completed they will be uploaded to our website, ncbrt.lsu.edu. Please feel free to check in from time to time to see what’s new.

TDEM Sponsored Training Update:
TDEM continues to monitor the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as it relates to COVID-19. To mitigate the spread of the virus, the CDC is encouraging organizations to promote social distancing, hold meetings via videoconferencing, reduce non-essential travel, and adjust or postpone events and gatherings.
Our plan is to work with impacted students to enroll them in courses later in the year to the maximum extent possible. Continue to monitor www.preparingtexas.org for updates to the Training calendar.
