You can get DOT hazardous materials training for yourself or your entire team anytime at your convenience. Environmental Resource Center’s online hazardous materials training allows you to take just the courses you need, so you won’t have to participate in training that does not apply to you. Combine the General Awareness module and the Safety and Security Awareness module with the function-specific modules that apply to your responsibilities.
The DOT requires that every hazmat employee receive training in three areas: General Awareness, Function-Specific, and Safety and Security. When you complete at least one session from each of these required categories, you will be certified according to the requirements of the U.S. Department of Transportation at 49 CFR 172 Subpart H for shipments of hazardous materials by ground. To meet the DOT training requirements for your specific job, you must complete each Function-Specific session that applies to your job—packaging, marking and labeling, shipping papers, bulk loading and unloading, non-bulk loading and unloading, hazardous waste manifesting.
