Transportation of Hazardous Materials Recertification (TRANS HAZMAT RECERT)

Last updated: 14 Nov 2023

The Transportation of Hazardous Materials Recertification Course provides requalification to certify hazardous materials for shipment. Students must have successfully completed the Transportation of Hazardous Materials Course, or the Army/Air Force equivalent course within the preceding two years prior to recertification. Included in this course is a comprehensive review of the transportation of hazardous materials by motor, rail and water, and the intensive review of the requirements for movement of hazardous materials by commercial/military air. Graduation credit is dependent upon successful completion of the final examination. Qualification attained is effective for two years, after which retraining is required. This course is extremely technical and requires at least average reading ability.

Instruction for transportation managers is provided in the federally mandated areas of: (1) safety, (2) familiarization and awareness, (3) function specific requirements, and (4) security. The course covers essential principles under Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 29 CFR and the Defense Transportation Regulations (DTR). The course provides essential training for managers who have oversight responsibilities for transportation of hazardous materials (HAZMAT), hazardous substances and hazardous wastes. This course is designed to prepare graduates to develop or evaluate local training resources and identify personnel requiring the varying levels of federally mandated biannual HAZMAT training. All HAZMAT employees are required by federal law to receive training every 24 months; therefore, trainers are encouraged to attend a course every two years to ensure currency with the regulations.
