A Combined Course for DOT Hazmat and California Title 22 Certification

Both the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) and the California state government have laws in place to regulate the transportation and accumulation of hazardous materials and waste. These regulations help ensure hazardous materials are handled properly and moved from place to place as safely as possible to prevent harm to workers, the public and the environment.

Companies and organizations that generate or transport hazardous waste must comply with federal and state regulations or risk hefty fines. Employees who work for such companies and organizations must receive training in order to maintain compliance. This training includes information about the identification of hazardous waste, contingency plan implementation, signing off on waste manifests and more.

Essentially, if your job involves transporting hazardous waste even if it is just to sign off on the waste manifest, you’ll likely need to take a course that meets DOT Hazmat and California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 22 regulations.

To make training more convenient for employers and workers, Hazmat School offers a combined online training and certification course, which takes only eight hours to complete. When you complete this course and pass the exam at the end, you’ll receive your certificate, so you can get to work.

The combined DOT/Title 22 course comes in two parts, each designed to fulfill certain regulatory requirements. Here’s what you can expect in each part of the training.


The state of California has its own laws in place to regulate hazardous waste generators. Part one of this course deals with the hazardous waste regulations found in sections of CCR Title 22: 66262.34 and 66265.16. The structure and objectives of this section are based on compliance with the California Hazardous Waste regulations.

When you complete part one of this course, you’ll be able to:

  1. Define hazardous waste.
  2. Understand the background and need for hazardous waste regulations.
  3. Define generation of hazardous waste.
  4. Understand RCRA and non-RCRA waste classifications.
  5. Define the terms generator and co-generator.
  6. List the three classes of generators and know what episodic generator means.
  7. Understand how waste accumulation works including on waste accumulation sites and satellite accumulation sites.
  8. Identify safety considerations when accumulating hazardous waste.
  9. Understand the basic toxicology and terminology relating to hazardous waste.
  10. Understand the importance of proper record keeping and reporting requirements for generators.
  11. Recognize a Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest and what information is required.
  12. Be able to accurately fill out a Uniform Hazardous Waste Manifest.
  13. Discuss new regulations regarding universal hazardous waste.
  14. Understand the need for proper training and emergency response.
  15. Understand the differences between federal hazardous waste regulations and state hazardous waste agency regulations.
  16. Meet the requirements of Title 22 CCR 66262.34 for certification as a hazardous waste handler.


In addition to Hazardous Waste laws in California, you also need to understand federal DOT Hazmat regulations in order to transport your waste off-site or sign off on any paperwork since it is DOT regulated. Parts 171 through 177 of Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) contain rules for the compatibility, packaging and shipping of hazardous materials.

In part two of your online course, you’ll learn more about DOT Hazmat regulations. Each unit is based on one or more of the following requirements. Upon completion of this program, you will have:

  • Met the requirements of 49 CFR, Part 172.704 for certification in hazardous materials handling and transportation
  • Reviewed the requirements of the DOT regulations relative to the transportation of hazardous materials
  • Reviewed the basic safety elements including recognition and identification of hazardous materials as required by the DOT regulations and the Hazard Communication Standard
  • Reviewed the basic operations required for handling emergencies involving hazardous materials for the DOT Hazmat Employee
  • Demonstrated some basic functions required for a DOT Hazmat Employee including basic knowledge of the Hazardous Materials Table (49 CFR 172.101), Labels and Placards, and Shipping Papers including hazardous waste manifests
  • Reviewed the nine DOT hazard classes and associated them with the appropriate placards for use in transportation
  • Gained an awareness of security risks associated with hazardous materials transportation (HM-232)
  • Learned about methods designed to enhance transportation security
  • Learned how to recognize and respond to possible security threats

What Regulations Does This Course Satisfy?

This CA Title 22 hazardous waste generator and DOT Hazmat employee combined course simplifies training by satisfying multiple requirements at the same time. This online course meets the requirements for certification outlined in:

  • Title 22 CCR 66262.34
  • Title 22 CCR 66265.16
  • DOT – 49 CFR 172.704 (subpart h)

Meeting the requirements outlined in these regulations is essential for hazardous waste generators and transporters operating in California. Failure to comply can place workers and the public at risk and result in tens of thousands of dollars in fines.

Part One covers Title 22 topics including classes of generators, basic toxicology, proper record keeping and safety considerations when accumulating hazardous waste. It also teaches students how to recognize and fill out a Universal Hazardous Waste Manifest. Part Two covers topics related to transportation, including identification of hazardous materials, methods for enhancing transportation security and proper procedures for emergencies involving hazardous materials.

Although Parts One and Two relate to each other, the topics covered do not overlap. This means you will learn new material throughout the course and receive the best value for your investment.

Industries That Require This Course

Hazardous waste is produced as a byproduct in a wide range of industries, from mining and petroleum refining to chemical manufacturing and metal fabrication. Even small businesses are capable of producing significant hazardous waste. Because many industries are directly or indirectly involved with hazardous waste, many workers require hazardous waste certification in California.

A hazardous waste generator is defined as anyone who produces hazardous waste or engages in activities that bring hazardous waste under regulation. Regardless of what industry you work in, you may need hazardous waste training if you work for one of these types of generators:

  • Large quantity generators (LQGs): These generators produce at least 1,000 kilograms of hazardous waste onsite every month.
  • Small quantity generators (SQGs): These generators produce below 1,000 kilograms of hazardous waste onsite each month. To remain classified as SQGs, they must also produce less than one kilogram of acutely hazardous waste.
