HAZWOPER training the first step to being hired

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - There are job opportunities for those looking to help with clean-up efforts, but you must have the right training.

The hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HAZWOPER) training courses are being offered this week, Monday through Friday, at Pearl River Community College's Waveland campus. You can choose from two sessions. The first is from 8am to noon. The second class begins at 1pm and ends at 5pm.

Attendance is limited to the first 80 participants for each session and late entry will not be allowed.

Once you've completed the training, you can apply for work Monday and Tuesday at the WIN Job Center in Waveland, Biloxi, Gulfport or Pascagoula.

One of the companies hiring is Advanced Industrial Services, which is working with Mississippi, Alabama and Florida job career centers. If you are already certified by OSHA, call the nearest WIN Job Center for more information.
