Product Details


Anyone having a job function which could in any way affect the safe transportation of dangerous goods, by any mode of transportation, is required by Federal and international regulations to undergo appropriate training. In an effort to prevent incidents and accidents from occurring, hazmat employees involved in the ground transportation of limited quantities process must comply with strict regulations established by the U.S. Department of Transportation and found in Title 49 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR) for the classification, identification, packing, marking and labeling, documentation, placarding, and segregation of hazardous materials. It is essential that these individuals undergo mandatory ground limited quantities training.  During initial or recurrent limited quantities trainingm stuents will lean, which types of dangerous goods are outright forbidden from being transported, and those that are only allowed under certain conditions and in certain amounts to qualify for limited quantities provisions.

Where authorized, the Limited Quantities provisions of 49 CFR provide an alternative method of shipping specific small quantities of certain substances, allowing for the use of packagings that are less stringently tested than those required for larger quantities, and offering relief from certain requirements for marking, labeling, and documentation. Because of this, the Limited Quantities provisions, if chosen to be used, provide significant cost savings to shippers while ensuring their shipments maintain compliance with those regulatory requirements that remain applicable.

Hazmat University’s ground limited quantities training provides initial or recurrent ground limited quantities training to participants involved with the shipping, handling, and/or transport of dangerous goods in Limited Quantities by ground. It may be completed as a standalone course by those involved with the ground transport of dangerous goods in limited quantities only, or it may be completed as a supplement to a more comprehensive training in the transport of dangerous goods by ground in order to enhance function-specific knowledge regarding limited quantities. This course offers comprehensive ground limited quantities training based on the requirements outlined in Title 49 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR). Additionally, this course complies with the initial and/or recurrent training requirements of 49 CFR Part 172, Subpart H, Section 172.704 for transportation of Limited Quantities by ground.

Employees who have undergone initial or recurrent ground limited quantities training in the past are required by law to undergo recurrent ground limited quantities training at least every three years according to 49 CFR.
