In the US, all hazmat shipments must comply with the US DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations (49 CFR). Training is mandatory for managers and employees who prepare hazmat for transport. The DOT hazmat rules are stringent. For hazmat training violations, the minimum fine is $481 per day, per employee. Training must include General Awareness, Safety Training, Security Awareness and Function Specific Training. Hazmat employee training must be repeated in its entirety (not just updated or refreshed) at least every three years. This "recurrent" training must include testing and formal record keeping. If an employee has not been re-trained within the past three years, that employee cannot perform any hazmat employee functions until training is complete.
You will have 90 days to complete your online course from the date of purchase. If you need more time, we may grant an extension on a case by case basis. To request an extension, email us at [email protected].
Importance of Finishing Courses On Time
Hazmat Authority online courses are designed to be completed within the allowable time frame. Extending course completion may make you out of compliance with the DOT or other training mandates. The DOT requires initial training within 90 days of employment and recurrent training is required within three years of your initial training anniversary.
