DOT Aviation HAZMAT Transportation

Online Training Certification Course

49 CFR 175

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

The Department of Transportation has specific standards regarding the loading, storage, transportation, and acceptance of hazardous materials by aircraft. This online certification course covers important concepts of HAZMAT shipping training, including safety measures involved in the handling and transportation of hazardous materials via airways. Topics presented in the online training content include inspecting shipments, packing requirements, markings, labeling, documentation, security awareness, and more.

This course is for:
Managers and employees who prepare hazmat for transport must receive air HAZMAT training. A HAZMAT employee includes anyone who classifies materials; signs shipping papers or manifests; assigns packing groups or hazard zones; determines markings or labels; works around hazardous materials; responds to hazard incidents; or operates any equipment used to transport hazardous materials. Both employees and anyone who directly supervises those performing HAZMAT activities must complete safety training.

Case Study:

On July 3rd, 2013, Hasan Ibrahain was convicted by a federal jury for attempting to place nine different hazardous materials on a passenger airplane bound for Frankfurt, Germany, with a final destination for Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. In related charges, the jury convicted Ibrahim of failing to properly label the packages containing the hazardous materials and failing to complete the requisite shipping papers as required by the DOT.

Many of the chemicals the defendant handled were flammable, corrosive, and highly toxic. As a result of their dangerous properties, many of the chemicals were forbidden by transport on a passenger airplane, and two chemicals in particular were forbidden by transport on any aircraft.

The maximum statutory penalty for each count of attempting to place a destructive substance on an airplane in violation of 18 U.S.C. §32(a)(2) is 20 years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

Governing Regulations

The Department of Transportation coordinates with other regulatory agencies to oversee and enforce HAZMAT shipping standards, including the International Air Transport Association (IATA). All HAZMAT shipments must comply with the DOT's Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR). Part 175 of 49 CFR is specific to the transportation of hazmat through carriage by aircraft. In addition to understanding general requirements covered in the HAZMAT General Awareness and Security training course, air carriers and shippers must comply with additional regulations listed under Part 175, as well as certain regulations within 14 CFR Parts 21, 23, and 91.
