Item Description

If you handle hazmat or dangerous goods, the U.S. Department of Transportation requires the general awareness training specified in 49 CFR Part 172.704 be taken every three years. This interactive online course meets the general awareness training requirements.

This 90 minute multi-modal course will cover:

  • An introduction to hazardous materials/dangerous goods
  • Why training is important and what the requirements are
  • Which agencies set the requirements, and the publications which state their requirements
  • The transport chain, including shipper and operator responsibilities within it
  • Dangerous goods classifications
  • General packing requirements and proper package selection
  • How to mark/label packages correctly
  • How to correctly document hazmat 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 three 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 (3 month) period to complete your training

The estimated average time needed to complete this course ranges from 1 ½ to 2 ½ hours, however, the time needed may vary by student.

This course is an overview of the regulations and is not for qualification or certification. This course is NOT for personnel who are responsible for acceptance checklists and regulatory review to determine compliance for a given shipment. Employees responsible for determining if packages comply with relevant regulations and employees responsible for certifying shipments (by signing a dangerous goods declaration or Hazmat Bill of Lading) will require additional training as specified by their employer.

Don’t forget to purchase any regulatory books you may need for shipping hazmat. Check out our wide selection of Regulatory Publications.
