About this Course

What is DOT Hazmat Advanced General Awareness Training?

You'll learn: 

  • How to identify hazardous materials 
  • How to read and interpret the Hazardous Materials Table 
  • The required information for shipping documents 
  • Labeling, marking and placarding requirements 
  • Packaging, loading and unloading requirements 
  • The modal-specific/carrier requirements for Highway, Air, Rail, and Water 
  • How to recognize and respond to potential security threats. 

This course meets the general awareness AND security awareness training requirements specified in 49 CFR Parts 100-185.   

Who Should Take DOT HazMat Advanced General Awareness Training? 

If your job directly impacts the safe transportation of hazardous materials by more than one mode of transportation, this course is for you. That includes anyone who: 

  • Ships or receives hazardous materials 
  • Prepares hazardous materials for transport

Depending on your duties, you may need additional, function-specific training.

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.
