DOT Training: HAZMAT Basic General Awareness (4 Hours)
Our DOT HAZMAT Training Online: Basic General Awareness (4 Hours) course is designed for employees who work in industries where hazardous materials are prepared or transported, who need to meet Federal DOT training requirements of 49 CFR 172.704(a)(1) and 49 CFR Part 172 Subpart H. This HAZMAT course would be applicable to workers such as drivers, manufacturers, and persons who manufacture, repair or recondition containers used to transport hazardous materials. We also offer a more in-depth DOT HAZMAT Training Online: General Awareness/Function Specific (10 Hr) course, which meets several function-specific requirements in addition to the basic requirements met by this 4 hour course.
This DOT HAZMAT course provides training regarding the many hazardous materials regulated by the US Department of Transportation (DOT). Students will learn how to use the hazmat table; how to complete hazmat shipping papers; when to use specific hazard placards, markings and labels; and how to appropriately package specific hazardous materials. This course can be used as either initial training or refresher training, which must be completed at least every three years per DOT requirements.
