WHMIS training is intended for any employee that comes in “close proximity” to a hazardous material(s).

Time to complete
On average, about 1-3 hours. The course is self paced so you can complete training in more than one sitting - the system will remember the last chapter you completed and start you there the next time you log in. Course duration will depend on the individual participant and their prior knowledge base with the course subject matter.
