DOT Does NOT Certify Hazardous Materials Training

The DOT does not have a program in place to certify hazardous material training programs or providers. Shippers, carriers and others who are subject to hazardous materials inspection by the DOT can expect a thorough review of training records to verify that all required training has been completed, including modal-specific training. DOT training components, detailed in 49 CFR 172.704, must include general awareness, function-specific, safety and security awareness training for all hazardous materials employees. Furthermore, in-depth security training is required for employees of facilities that are required by the DOT to have written security plans.

To comply with the regulations of the DOT, shippers, carriers and other hazmat employers must identify hazmat employees, conduct or have conducted required training, testing, and maintain accurate records of training.

See 49 CFR 172.704 http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov/cgi/t/text/text-idx?c=ecfr&sid=4311fdf05c3b4423f7ceccf07b596432&rgn=div5&view=text&node=49:2.1.1.3.7&idno=49#49:2.1.1.3.7.8
