Please note, Hazardous Materials First Responder Operations is a class that is part of the BEFO curriculum.  If a department that has a student that is planning on taking BEFO in the future, they can take this class now and it will work as credit for the BEFO class which will shorten the BEFO class by 4 nights at the end.  This is a great way to get the Hazmat part of BEFO behind the student prior to BEFO.
