* - Note for all of our STS HAZWOPER training courses: A change of clothing (shorts and a t-shirt) is recommended. Our courses are hands-on and may include wearing full PPE (including HAZMAT suit). It may be more comfortable for some to change into clean clothes when returning to the classroom on those days.
