Those who have taken individual courses in Laboratory Safety, Biohazards with Bloodborne Pathogens, Hazard Communications, and Ancillary Radiation Safety training in the past (and this is reflected in your training history), may take this composite retraining without taking the initial "in person" safety training, or retaking the individual safety courses..
