DO YOU PACKAGE HAZARDOUS MATERIALS FOR GROUND AND INTERNATIONAL AIR SHIPMENTS?
Whether you package dangerous goods for domestic transport, international shipments or both, you need to complete Department of Transportation hazardous materials transport training. The United States Department of Transportation oversees and enforces regulations regarding the transport of hazmat within the borders of the U.S. The DOT coordinates with other agencies to enforce mandates regarding international hazmat shipments, including the International Air Transport Association and the International Civil Aviation Organization.
Completing a DOT shipment training course with IATA won’t require you to cease your operations or force you to put your work on hold. That’s because Hazmat School offers online hazmat training for DOT and IATA. By offering training online, we give employers and employees the opportunity to complete their required training at their own pace when it’s convenient for them.
DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY BY AIR?
If your organization ships hazmat to other countries by air, then DOT and IATA hazmat shipping training isn’t just optional for you and your employees — it’s required.
Hazmat School offers online training for shipping hazardous materials by air for employers and employees tasked with shipping hazmat domestically and/or internationally. This course will enable you and your employees to earn the certification necessary to ship dangerous goods to locations outside of the United States within the confines of the prevailing regulations.
When you complete this course, you’ll receive your hazmat certification immediately. If you’re an employer, you’ll have access to your employees’ certifications through your corporate or group account.
DO YOU SHIP BY AIR WITHIN THE US VIA FEDEX, UPS, DHL, ETC.?
Even if your hazmat shipments are limited to destinations located within the U.S. exclusively, you and your employees still must undergo an initial round of training and subsequent training every three years for ground shipments and every two years for air shipments. You can receive the hazmat training for DOT and IATA online through Hazmat School.
