Shipping Hazmat Auto Parts

Course Code:


Auto Parts Managers and their teams must understand and follow the DOT's hazmat rules because of the unique challenges and hazards associated with their shipments. Products like engines, airbag modules, batteries, paints, and others are regulated under the DOT's hazmat regulations, and effective training is critical to avoiding rejected shipments and costly civil penalties. The U.S. DOT requires all hazmat employees to complete training in general and security awareness, as well as the "function-specific" requirements of their job.

This course is designed to teach students how to ship hazardous materials according to the U.S. DOT hazardous materials regulations and the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations.  It focuses on the unique materials commonly shipped by automotive parts and service operations.

Registration includes an easy-to-download compliance notebook, along with Lion's top-notch reference materials.
