SHIPPING LITHIUM BATTERIES

Course Code: HMT 254, HMT C54A

$299 - $349

This course provides hazardous materials/dangerous goods training required to ship lithium batteries by ground, air, and vessel.

The training guides shippers through a step-by-step procedure to classify and offer fully regulated and/or excepted lithium batteries packaged separately, in-equipment, or with equipment. It provides training required by 49 CFR, the IATA DGR, and the IMDG Code for hazmat employees involved in shipping lithium batteries.


Key Learning Objectives:

  • Confidently navigate and apply US and international regulations to safely ship fully regulated or excepted lithium batteries by ground, air, or vessel.  
  • Identify key additional IATA DGR requirements for air shipments (e.g., Section I vs. Section II lithium batteries and cells by air).
  • Provide general awareness, security awareness, and function-specific training for employees who perform typical shipping functions for lithium batteries. 
The course is designed to provide training required for hazmat employees involved in shipping lithium batteries by ground, air, or vessel. US DOT, IATA/ICAO, and the IMDG Code all require hazmat training for employees who prepare lithium batteries for transport by ground, air, or vessel (49 CFR 172.704, IATA DGR 1.5, IMDG Code 1.3.1). .


Registration includes:

  • Engaging, interactive shipping lithium batteries training
  • Trusted compliance resources
  • Certificate to document your lithium battery hazmat training
  • Updates to your reference materials throughout the year
  • 365 days of Lion Membership for complete compliance support


Shipping Lithium Batteries Training Covers:

  • Hazmat general and security awareness training
  • How to ship fully regulated lithium batteries
  • How to ship small or excepted lithium batteries
  • Key differences for fully regulated/excepted (Section I/Section II) batteries by air
  • Selecting the right IATA DGR Packing Instruction for air transport (965, 966, etc.)
  • How to classify and name lithium batteries for transportation
  • Selecting authorized packaging for fully regulated or excepted shipments
  • Marking and labeling fully regulated and excepted shipments
  • Placarding requirement for lithium battery shipments
  • Hazmat shipping papers and the Shipper’s Declaration
The rules for shipping lithium batteries by ground, air, and vessel change constantly. Shippers must know the latest requirements to avoid rejected shipments, prevent incidents and short-circuits in transit, and protect against US DOT hazmat fines now as high as $84,425 per day, per violation.
