FAQs

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.

Your course will expire one (1) year after you purchase it (the date you submit payment), unless the course itself indicates otherwise.
