Item Description

If you are involved in shipping any damaged, defective or recalled (D/D/R) lithium ion or lithium metal batteries, the U.S. Department of Transportation requires the training specified in 49 CFR Subpart H, Section 172.704. This interactive online course is always up-to-date with the latest regulations and meets the US DOT training requirements for individuals who perform or direct the functions of packaging, marking, labeling, or loading packages containing damaged, defective or recalled lithium batteries for shipment by ground according to the provisions of the 49 CFR. This course consists of two modules, a General Awareness module and a Function Specific module that provides detailed instruction on D/D/R shipping processes.

In this course, you will cover:

  • A definition of what “hazardous materials” are
  • The nine classes of hazardous materials set out in the regulations
  • An overview of what lithium batteries are and why they are potentially hazardous
  • Lithium battery general awareness
  • The specific provisions for shipping D/D/R shipments found in 49 CFR 173.185 (f)
  • Packaging and package selection
  • Marking, labeling, and documentation requirements
  • Safety, emergency response, and security awareness
  • The shipper’s responsibilities in the transportation process

In the training course will experience:

  • A fully interactive environment, with built-in learning checks and a final exam.
  • A convenient online platform, allowing you to stop at any point and return later to where you left off.
  • Easy record-keeping and a certificate of completion, which is valid for two years from the date you successfully complete the course. The certificate will be saved in your online account and can be e-mailed, downloaded or printed.
  • Access to the course for a ninety-day period (3 months) to complete your training

Although not required, it is strongly recommended that you have a copy of the regulations applicable to your specific shipping needs to maximize your learning experience ( i.e. IATA, 49 CFR, IMDG or ADR).

The estimated average time needed to complete this course ranges from 2 to 4 hours, however, the time needed may vary by student.

If you ship any other hazardous materials or dangerous goods products, you may need additional training. It is the responsibility of your employer to determine what training is required.
