Item Description

If you are involved in shipping 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 lithium batteries for shipment by highway, rail, air or vessel. The course covers both excepted and fully regulated lithium batteries.

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
  • Packaging and package selection (both UN packaging and non-UN packaging types)
  • Marking, labeling, and documentation requirements
  • Safety, emergency response, and security awareness
  • The shipper’s responsibilities in the transportation process

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 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 month) 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).

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

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.

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.
