Cal OES/ CSTI manages a very successful Hazmat outreach training program which includes 1,201 courses last year and 22,057 persons trained. Most of our Hazmat courses have received Department of Homeland Security approval for the use of Homeland Security Grant Funds.
CSTI Outreach Instructors have successfully completed training in the Institute’s Instructor Certification Course. Outreach Instructors deliver hundreds of courses per year to thousands of first responders in municipal and governmental organizations, private industry, and the military. From First Responder Awareness to Hazardous Materials Specialist, students acquire the skills needed to save lives and protect both the environment and property.

Good Afternoon,Thank you for your commitment to the CSTI Emergency Management Outreach Department. As many of you know the teaching requirement to remain a certified instructor has been changed to four hours annually. Due to the current situation with COVID-19 we have decided to extend that deadline to close of business on December 31, 2021. This extension provides an additional twelve months to fulfill your 2020 teaching requirement.
As a reminder, you do not have to teach your own course to receive your four hour teaching credit. You are welcome to be an instructor during another instructor’s course. If you choose to go this route you will need to submit an EM Form 180 along with the schedule for the course that shows the blocks you had taught.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the new Emergency Management Outreach Policies and Procedures please email EMOutreach.Coordinator@caloes.ca.gov.
