In compliance with U.S. DOT regulations (49 CFR 172.704 Subpart H) also known as HM -181, this U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) training is for individuals who handle, manage, transport, or ship hazardous materials/hazardous waste.

You can proceed in this DOT training course at your own pace and schedule.

If you offer hazardous materials for transportation, you must ensure the training of your hazmat employees. DOT training must be in accordance with the applicable parts of the HMR. Every person who performs a function subject to the HMR must be trained and tested, and the hazardous materials employer must create and maintain records of training in accordance with Section 172.704(d). Every person such as a freight forwarder, agent or broker, who performs a function required by Part 173 must perform that function according to the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR). This means that all hazardous materials must be properly classified, described, and packaged. All hazmat employees must receive security awareness training. In-depth security training, however, is only required for those hazmat employees whose employers must develop a security plan.

Who Needs Initial and Recurrent Training?
A new hazmat employee or a hazmat employee who changes job functions must complete DOT training requirements for the new job function(s) within 90 days. However, the employee may perform new hazardous materials job functions prior to the completion of training, provided the employee performs those functions under the supervision of a properly trained and knowledgeable hazmat employee. Hazmat employees must receive the required DOT training at least once every three years. In actuality, it could be anyone who meets any of the following criteria:
– A person who offers a hazardous material for transportation
– A person who is involved in the transportation of a hazardous material
– A person who labels or marks packages that are being transported
Who Maintains Training Records?
Each hazmat employer must create and retain a record of current DOT training for each hazmat employee. The record must include information for at least the last three years. This record must be retained for as long as that employee is employed as a hazmat employee and for 90 days thereafter. The training records must include the following information:
– Hazmat employees name
– Most recent training completion date
– Description, copy or location of training materials used
– Name and address of the person providing the training
– Certification that the hazmat employee has been trained and tested as required.
How Long Does The Certification Last?
The hazardous materials training is required to be completed within the first 90 days of employment. The certification period is good for three years and then the hazardous materials training program must be retaken. If your job responsibilities change, your training needs may change.
