4 Reasons Hazmat University is Your One-Stop Shop for Hazardous Materials Shipping Training

Anyone whose job involves the performance of any task regulated by the Hazardous Materials Regulations is required by the US Department of Transportation to undergo hazardous materials shipping training. Likewise, all employers must provide their employees with relevant training applicable to their job function. The Department of Transportation even gives them provisions for this outlined in Title 49 CFR, Subpart H. Hazmat University recognizes the need for anyone entrusted with the handling of dangerous goods to be trained to use the dangerous goods regulations and to be able to perform their job functions when handling dangerous goods. That is why we make certain that our training programs are exemplary and our features are excellent and easy to access. Here are four reasons to make Hazmat University your go-to place for online hazardous materials shipping training.

A Variety of Training Options

Every student has a specific set of needs that a general awareness training might not meet. Therefore, we offer a variety of classes that can suit a variety of needs such as a specific mode of transport. Our online training covers different modes of transportation – ground, air, and sea – and you can take individual courses on each. You can even combine them in any combination you may want, and at the same time save money, because combining them provides a lower price bracket than you would get from taking them separately. This can be accomplished through our multimodal training options. The different modes of transport also cover different sets of regulations, such as Title 49 CFR – Hazardous Materials Regulations, the International Air Transport Association Dangerous Goods Regulations, and the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code. Training can be as broad, such as General Awareness Training, or specific and focused, such as the Lithium Batteries Training.

Regular Updates

The Hazardous Materials Regulations are updated several times a year, so it can be difficult to keep track of all the changes. Hazmat University understands this and updates the lesson plans and materials for Hazmat University’s online content in accordance with these regulatory changes as needed. Anyone handling hazardous materials is required to not only know the many rules and guidelines governing their handling and shipping but also stay on top of any amendments and regulatory changes made to them. We make sure that our online training content is always up to date.

Everything is Online

Hazmat employees are identified all over the world, but we cannot realistically demand that they stay at a single physical location to attend online hazardous materials shipping training, and traveling to the training locations can get expensive. Our solution is to provide our training over the internet so that you can take these lessons from anywhere at any time. There is no need to worry about traffic, parking, or adjusting your current work schedule. Whether you enter the Online Learning Center from the office, the library, or the comfort of your own home, you will be able to access your training and assignments immediately – and with a little more comfort.

Start Immediately

Certain hazardous materials training programs begin and end on specific dates, and if you miss the start of one training session, you would have to wait for another. Hazmat University allows you to begin your training from the moment that you finish placing your order. Your enrollment codes come with your order confirmation. All you have to do is follow the instructions and register at the Online Learning Center, and you will be able to start whichever course you enrolled in right away.
