Course Description

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) under the Department of Transportation requires that Hazmat Employers* train all Hazmat Employees** within 90 days of starting in the position and conduct recurrent training every three years thereafter.  The Hazardous Materials Transportation Train the Trainer course, offered at no-cost, is designed for personnel who will be preparing and conducting this training.
