Who Should Take This Course?

Our online “Using the Current Emergency Response Guidebook” course is designed to provide in-depth training on the effective use of the most current Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG). If you have taken our online FRA or FRO courses, this ERG training was included within that training.

Students must have a current version of the Department of Transportation (DOT) Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG) to use during this course. There is a downloadable version of the ERG available to all students, or the student may opt during enrollment to have the guidebook mailed to them.
