Online Training Certification Course AFMAN 24-204 Preparing Hazardous Materials For Shipment
from the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.
This course, based on Air Force Manual 24-204 IP, was developed for persons that handle, pack, inspect, and/or prepare (certify) hazardous materials for transport as cargo on military-controlled aircraft. This includes civilian contractors supporting the military, and all organizations (government and non-government) involved in humanitarian relief efforts supported by U.S. Military Air Transport.
The United States military frequently handles and transports hazardous materials. All branches of the Armed Services, contractors, and humanitarian agencies transporting hazardous materials using military aircraft, must follow certain defense transportation regulations. This online training course provides HAZMAT certification for personnel engaged in tasks covered by the United States Air Force Manual (AFMAN) 24-204.
What are the governing regulations? Regulations covering military HAZMAT training for airborne transport are found in AFMAN 24-204, Preparing Hazardous Materials For Military Air Shipments. Section 1.3 mandates general awareness hazmat training as well as focused training tailored to each worker's responsibilities.
AFMAN 24-204 is also known as TM 38-250 for the U.S. Army, NAVSUP PUB 505 for the U.S. Navy, MCO P4030.19I for the U.S. Marine Corps, and DLAI 4145.3 for the Defense Logistics Agency.
Who must take this training? Military and civilian personnel handling, sorting, packing, securing, inspecting, certifying, or shipping dangerous goods using Department of Defense aircraft must follow the procedures specified in AFMAN 24-204. Even though this AFMAN training is based on an Air Force publication, this program meets the requirements of any similar Navy, Marine, and Army hazmat course, too.
Case Study: A shipment of gas cylinders was shipped from the United Kingdom to Dubai. An explosion occurred after the shipment was unloaded into a warehouse in Dubai, causing minor injuries. An investigation into the explosion determined that the cause was from incompatibly packaged dangerous goods. If the explosion would have occurred on the flight, the consequences could have been catastrophic.
The lesson was helpful and in depth to be online. I had to take notes and highlight some information that was helpful. The test was okay even though I had to take the test twice, but the first test I did not open the open the book and was pretty decent to get a 55 percent. Overall it was a good result. Xavier D
