The responsibilities and duties that many hazmat employees must fulfill at times may only revolve around a single mode of transportation for the shipping of dangerous goods, whether it is shipping them by ground, air, or vessel. However, certain employment opportunities entail that an employee be involved with a transportation process that involves more than one mode of transportation. Federal and international standards require that anyone handling, shipping, or otherwise working directly or indirectly with hazardous materials related to a transportation function must undergo training before they can take on the role of being a hazmat employee - including recurrent training if they have previously taken initial training - and that includes undergoing training specific to each mode of transport.

These requirements can complicate matters for employers and employees alike. If a hazmat employee’s position involves them in functions related to the transport of dangerous goods by both air and sea/vessel, they are required to undergo recurrent training for both modes. Hazmat University knows and understands this, and that is why we offer online multimodal recurrent training options. This option combines the modules from the air recurrent and vessel recurrent courses, allowing hazmat employees to undergo both types of training at once. Another notable feature of this recurrent multimodal option is that the price for combining both our air recurrent and vessel recurrent training courses is less than the price of purchasing both courses separately. You can save money and complete the training for air and vessel recurrent.

This course provides required recurrent training to participants involved with shipping dangerous goods by air and by vessel. Dangerous goods by air 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. Dangerous goods by vessel training is based on the requirements outlined in 49 CFR and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code.

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