10 Hour Course

The DOT Hazmat Transportation: Advanced General Awareness 10 Hour Training course is designed to provide an in-depth introduction to the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR, CFR Title 49 Parts 171-180). This 10-Hour DOT Hazmat training course encompasses:

  • general awareness training,
  • function-specific training (such as packaging, marking, labeling, placarding, etc.),
  • modal-specific training (i.e., the requirements for transportation of hazardous materials by highway, rail, air, and water), and
  • security awareness training requirements.

The 10-Hour DOT Hazmat Transportation Training course is for employees who are involved in the packaging, marking, labeling, placarding, and transporting of hazardous materials. In short, every worker employed in an industry that handles the transport of hazardous materials must complete the DOT 10-Hour advanced general awareness training in order to protect their own safety and that of others. The DOT classifies hazmat employees as those who:

  1. Load, unload, or handle hazardous materials;
  2. Prepare hazardous materials for transportation;
  3. Operate a vehicle used in the transportation of hazardous materials;
  4. Are responsible for the security of hazardous materials while in transport; and
  5. Manufacture, test, repair, mark, or modify containers, drums, or other packaging used in the transport of hazardous materials.

Employees whose job function directly affects the safe transportation of hazardous materials must receive the DOT Hazmat Transportation Training within 90 days after employment or a change in job function. Hazmat employees must receive recurrent training at least once every three years to remain in compliance with federal law. For employees engaged in the transportation of hazardous materials by air, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires DOT hazmat regulation training once every two years.

Answer: While this DOT Hazmat Transportation Advanced General Awareness Training course provides training under the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR; 49 CFR Parts 171-180), personnel engaged in the transportation of hazardous materials by air may require additional training on the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations. On similar lines, personnel engaged in the transportation of hazardous materials by vessel may require additional training on the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code.  
0
votes
Answer:
Yes. This is because anyone who offers a hazardous material (including hazardous waste) for transportation must sign a document containing the following certification:

“I hereby declare that the contents of this consignment are fully and accurately described above by the proper shipping name, and are classified, packaged, marked and labeled/placarded, and are in all respects in proper condition for transport according to applicable international and national governmental regulations.” 

Therefore, in order to certify the above and to ensure that the shipment is in compliance with the DOT’s Hazardous Materials Regulation (HMR), an employee who is expected to sign a Hazardous Waste Manifest must be knowledgeable in all relevant areas of the HMR. 

0
votes
Answer: The DOT’s Hazardous Materials Regulation (HMR) do not specify any exceptions to training requirements for shippers/carriers transporting limited or small quantities of hazardous materials. Hence, all personnel involved in transporting HazMat must be adequately trained, irrespective of the amount of hazardous materials being shipped.
