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.
By DOT regulation, training needs to be repeated at least once every 3 years. However, the IATA requires retraining every 24 months (2 years) instead (IATA 126.96.36.199). The IATA deadline isn't legally enforceable in the U.S., but some carriers may refuse shipments if it isn't met.
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.
