Every day in the U.S., there are many shipments of hazardous materials (HAZMATs). According to the Security of Transportation, these substances and materials are capable of posing an unreasonable risk to health, safety and property during transportation. To mitigate this risk, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) enforces strict regulations for transporting hazardous materials.

Our DOT HAZMAT Specialist course offers students a comprehensive understanding of hazardous materials and up-to-date information about DOT standards for HAZMAT transportation.

DHS Course Overview

Employees working with hazardous materials need proper DOT HAZMAT safety training to know and apply regulations that prevent mishandling of potentially dangerous materials. In our DOT HAZMAT training course, students will study the Hazardous Materials Table to learn about different types of HAZMAT and safety regulations.

Students who complete the course should have a thorough knowledge of the following topics:

  • HAZMAT classifications, marking and labeling.
  • Transportation details like shipping papers and packaging.
  • Carrier requirements for highway, air and rail transportation.
  • Emergency response techniques and incident reporting.
  • HAZMAT employee training.

At the end of the course, you will be required to take a comprehensive exam to demonstrate your knowledge. You’ll have two opportunities to pass the test with a score of 80% or better to receive your DOT Hazmat Specialist certificate.

Our DHS course takes approximately 13 hours to complete depending on your existing knowledge. This course is IACET-accredited, so students will earn 1.3 continuing education units (CEUs) for finishing, which will be reflected on their certificate.

  • Online Exams

    The student will take a comprehensive online exam at the end of the course. You must score 80% to receive a certificate. You have two opportunities to pass the exam.

  • Recertification

    The National Association of Safety Professionals (NASP) DOT HAZMAT Specialist certificates are valid for three years, at which time you’ll need to recertify. Recertification involves a quick refresher course and another exam to ensure you’re updated on the latest safety standards.

    The cost to recertify is $150 within six months of your original certificate’s expiration. Outside of that six-month time frame, additional fees may apply for recertification.
