Product Details

Many hazmat employees specialize in one of the three main modes of transportation for dangerous goods - ground, vessel, or air - and they are required by Federal and international regulations to undergo training in the regulations that apply to the respective mode of transport with which they are involved. Specific employment opportunities, however, give employees responsibilities that overlap with more than one means of transportation. Working in more than one process often means having to follow more than one set of regulations, and certainly means having to undergo multimodal hazmat training.

Hazmat University understands this and offers options for multimodal hazmat training that provide employees the training they need. Multimodal Ground and Vessel Training offers all of the same hazmat training required of hazmat employees involved in both the ground and vessel transportation processes, for a lower price.

This multimodal hazmat training course provides the required initial or recurrent multimodal hazmat training to participants involved with the shipping, handling, and transport of dangerous goods by ground and vessel. Hazmat training for shipping dangerous goods by ground was developed based upon the requirements outlined in Title 49 of the United States Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR). The hazmat training for shipping dangerous goods by vessel is based on the requirements outlined in 49 CFR and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code.

Included in this course at no additional cost are General Awareness and Security Awareness.
