TEMA has developed the HMTO 80-hour course in which the individual student is trained to operate in an offensive mode when responding to a hazardous materials incident. It is also designed to prepare team members to operate safely and as a unit in dealing with hazardous materials incidents. Emphasis is on teamwork and the use and limitations of existing team quipement. Content includes personal protection, safety procedures, basic physical and chemical properties, container characteristics, basic tactics and guidelines for team policies, procedures, and operations. Module quizzes are utilized to evaluate class progress. Field trips and hands-on competency drills are conducted to reinforce classroom activities. There is a final test and the course concludes with an evaluated written and practical (hands-on) exam, with a full-scale team exercise. An average score of 80 must be maintained to successfully complete the course. At least one of these courses is offered in each TEMA region per year, contingent upon funding.
