What's the Difference Between the General Awareness and Advanced General Awareness Courses?
Advanced General Awareness is a 10-hour course. It meets your requirements for general awareness, security awareness, and an overview of all carrier requirements.
General Awareness is the 1-hour course that meets your general awareness requirement ONLY.
When and How Often Do I Need DOT HazMat Training?
By DOT regulation, you need to complete initial HazMat training:
- Within 90 days of being hired as a new HazMat employee
- Within 90 days of changing HazMat duties as an existing employee
- Within 90 days of a revised security plan being implemented (applies to in-depth security training ONLY)
If you start performing duties before you're trained, you need to perform your duties under the direct supervision of a properly trained and knowledgeable HazMat employee.
Then, training needs to be repeated at least once every 3 years.
When Does My Course Expire?
Your course will expire one (1) year after you purchase it (the date you submit payment), unless the course itself indicates otherwise.
