Item Description

If you are involved in shipping excepted lithium ion or lithium metal batteries, the U.S. Department of Transportation requires the training specified in 49 CFR Sub-part H, Section172. 704

This interactive online hazmat 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 excepted lithium batteries for shipment by highway, rail, air or vessel. Excepted lithium batteries are smaller, less energy-dense batteries or cells which qualify for relief from certain regulatory provisions.

In about 90 minutes, you will cover:

  • Lithium battery general awareness
  • Regulations relevant to shipping lithium batteries
  • The shipper’s responsibilities
  • Straightforward, easy to follow guidelines for how to identify which batteries are excepted
  • How to pack, mark and label excepted lithium battery shipments

You 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 completed the course. This 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 to complete your training.

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

You will receive your access link along with your log-in credentials within approximately 2 hours of your purchase during regular weekday business hours (7 a.m. - 6 p.m. CT). Each user must have a valid email address in order to receive their credentials. Invalid credit card info, missing user info, or freight quote requirements for other items on your order will delay training activation.

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).

If you are placing this order on behalf of another user, or are placing an order for multiple users, please let us know the name(s) of the users (so that the certificates are accurate). You may email or call 800.621.5808.


How long will I have access to the course content?

Your course access will expire three months (ninety days) after you receive your log in information and first access the course.

The regulations require that I/my employer keep training records. Does this course help with that?

Yes. After passing the course, you will be provided with a certificate of completion. Under the government regulations, the certificate is valid for two years. You should print and save your certificate for your records. You may access your certificate on-line for a period of 3 years following the completion of your course. The employer remains responsible for maintaining training records.

Will this Training Meet the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Training Requirements?
