New Hazardous Substances Removal Course

Sunday, August 7, 2011 Filed Under Contractors License

We are proud to announce the release of our NEW Hazardous Substances Removal (HSR) Course: Updated Manual, DVDs and CDs.

Additions to the manual include:
  • New and improved graphics throughout the text
  • Reorganized sections covering Personal Protective Equipment, Site Control and Transporting Hazardous Materials
  • NEW sections covering Underground Storage Tank (UST) Operation and UST Closure-in-Place and Removal
Entirely NEW lectures have been recorded featuring Tom Baroody, licensed General Building and HSR Ceritified Contractor:

Tom highlights the most important information in the manual and uses examples from his own experience to make the topics easier to understand.
  • The General Knowledge Lecture includes detailed explanations of the topics covered in the manual
  • The Hazardous Substances Removal Review Questions lecture covers the HSR Review questions
  • Both lectures are condenced onto one CD or one DVD
  • HSR students should now listen to or watch the Math Review Lecture and follow along with pages 3-8 of the Manual.

The HSR manual briefly covers the major topics of the Contractors License exam including Hazardous Waste, Sampling, Personal Protective Equipment, Atmospheric Hazard Quidelines, Site Control, Underground Storage Tanks, Subsurface Barriers, Excavation Equipment, and Transporting Hazardous Materials. The manual also includes a Glossary and a section covering the Health and Safety Orders. The last section of the HSR manual is the Hazardous Substances Removal Review Questions.

The Math Review Lecture covers the math formuals in the first part of the HSR manual. The Hazardous Substances Removal General Knowledge lecture covers the topics addressed in the manual specific to the HSR Certificate exam. The Health and Safety lecture covers the Health and Safety Orders at the end of the HSR manual. The Hazardous Substances Removal Review Questions lecture covers review questions in the back of the manual.

The new HSR course includes three complete Practice Exams, HSR Update and separate Health and Safety practice exam. Please be sure to study all of the practice exams. It is important to read and understand each question, and read every word of explanations. It is necessary to learn principles behind the questions because the State License Exam questions may be worded differently.

The HSR Certificate Computer-Assisted Practice Tests are included in the course as well. The computer disc will load a software program on the student's computer. The program presents questions one at a time, automatically scores the exam, presents the student with a grade, and lists each question answered incorrectly along with the correct answer.
