Hazmat employees that are involved in the processing of hazardous materials for transportation in commerce typically may not have responsibilities that encompass dealing with more than one mode of transportation such as air, ground and vessel independently and are required by federal and international regulations to undergo training within that one mode. However, depending on the nature of their employment, certain hazmat employees have duties and responsibilities that extend across more than one mode for transporting hazardous materials. When air and ground modes come together, employers must provide their employees with initial and recurrent training in the applicable modes of transportation before those employees can begin performing their duties and working with the hazardous material / dangerous goods in any capacity

Hazmat University provides online recurrent training for each mode of transportation respectively and combined. For employers and employees involved in more than one mode, we also provide online recurrent multimodal options, including recurrent multimodal air and ground training. The modules from the separate courses for recurrent air and recurrent ground training are combined to provide a comprehensive recurrent training program for air and ground, and at a lower cost than if you purchase the courses separately. If your responsibilities extend across shipping by ground and shipping by air, you can successfully complete the required 49 CFR and IATA recurrent training with our online recurrent multimodal option.

This course provides the required recurrent training to participants involved with the shipping of dangerous goods by ground and by air. Dangerous goods by air recurrent training is based on the requirements outlined in Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR), International Air Transport Association Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR) and the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Technical Instructions. Recurrent training for shipping hazardous materials by ground was developed based upon the requirements outlined in 49 CFR.

If you have not undergone any training in the past, you may instead qualify for our online initial training.
