An Online Course to Satisfy DOT Hazmat Training Requirements
The US DOT has established a series of regulations governing training programs for what are termed Hazmat Employees. A Hazmat Employee is defined as anyone who is involved with the transportation of hazardous materials. Automobile dealers and suppliers that ship hazardous materials or prepare them for shipping are subject to the DOT’s Hazmat Training Requirements. You can find these requirements in Subpart H of Title 49 Part 172 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
The federal government requires that all Hazmat employees receive some basic training that covers hazardous materials awareness, safety, security and other topics related to specific job function. The DOT training program is sometimes referred to as HM-181 or HM-126 training.
Unlike some HM-181 training programs, our online course focuses specifically on topics relevant to the automobile industry. This allows you to satisfy DOT Hazmat training requirements while delving into topics that directly affect your everyday work. The training course is ideal for large teams of employees as well as individuals.
