New this year, the NMSHMM course will take place over 4-days to allow students more time with the instructors, modules, and to work through practice problems. This 4-day course is offered during the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, and is invaluable for the environmental professional looking to gain a comprehensive understanding of the disciplines involved with Hazardous Materials management and other Environmental fields. The course is designed as a preparatory course for the CHMM certification. A 1-day refresher option is available, which provides the annual CHMM point requirements. Back by popular demand is the option to attend via remote webinar; enjoy the benefit of the interactive course from the comfort of your home or office.
