HazMat Proficiency Testing (HazMatPT™) Program


The Signature Science HazMatPT™ program is designed to help first responders maintain and demonstrate analytical testing and assessment competency in the face of continually evolving threats. 

Our program provides HazMat-oriented test panels distributed once per quarter on a subscription basis. Each quarterly test panel includes four (4) different chemical samples that can be analyzed using common first responder equipment (HAPSITE, FirstDefender, HazMatID, etc.), methods (GC/MS, Raman, FTIR, etc.), and test kits. The PT samples challenge first responders with types of compounds that could be encountered operationally, including explosives precursors, white powders, methamphetamine reagents and precursors, pesticides and related chemicals, TICs and TIMs, chemical warfare-related compounds, poisons, and pharmaceuticals.

  2017 HazMatPT Program Schedule

All sample sets now come with at least one (1) sample designed for GC/MS analysis!

Subscribers who complete one (1) PT for four (4) consecutive quarters, with an overall accuracy score of 90% or better will receive a certificate of recognition and commendation.
