Shipping Dangerous Goods - Transporting Hazardous Materials
Online Training Certification Courses
From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.
Transporting hazardous materials training includes both domestic and international transport. The rules pertaining to the shipping of dangerous goods vary by country, mode of transport, and even the materials themselves. We offer a comprehensive selection of online certification courses for anyone involved in shipping dangerous goods and transporting hazardous materials (see complete list below).
Training can begin immediately. Upon successful completion the student will have immediate access to a printable certificate and wallet card.
Anyone who works in the handling and transportation of dangerous goods must complete HAZMAT shipping certification. Working with HAZMAT is, by definition, hazardous, and employees must use extreme caution. HAZMAT training helps employees identify hazardous materials, be aware of associated hazards, and ensure that shipments are in compliance with the regulations.
Multimodal training covers the hazards and safety measures involved in shipping hazardous materials by road, air, rail, and vessel. Workers that handle hazardous materials for transport on military-controlled aircraft must undergo AFMAN training, while Polar Code training applies to shipments involving the Arctic and Antarctic regions. Shipping dangerous goods internationally by vessel requires IMDG training. IATA DGR training is required of anyone involved in the air transport of dangerous goods. If you ship internationally, you need to be familiar with other countries' regulations, such as TDG Canada.
Many everyday items that seem safe may become dangerous when exposed to normal conditions of transport, such as changes in temperature and pressure, vibrations, and security risks. HAZMAT shipping training ensures that dangerous goods are handled and transported safely. Anyone responsible for transporting hazardous materials can use our online training for certification, recertification, and refresher courses on the required material.
