New Online Hazmat Training Courses for Operations Personnel

Posted on 2/26/2014 by Roger Marks

With hazmat shipments coming under more and more scrutiny and fines for shipping mistakes as high as $75,000 per day, per violation, it’s critical that every employee at your facility is prepared to meet his or her compliance responsibilities.  
For convenient, effective online training options to satisfy your team’s 49 CFR ground, IATA air, and IMDG vessel shipper training requirements, visit now.  Easy to use and available 24/7, Lion’s online courses help fit mandatory training into your team’s day-to-day operations.
The US DOT and International Maritime Organization (IMO) require all “hazmat employees” to complete training once every 3 years.* IATA requires hazmat air shipping personnel to complete training once every 24 months. ** 
Designed for operations personnel who package, mark, label, placard, load, and unload hazmat ground shipments, this online course covers the latest 49 CFR hazmat shipping regulations.   The course is designed to satisfy the DOT’s “general awareness,” “security awareness,” and “function-specific” training requirements for hazmat employees at 172.704(c).
As of January 1, personnel who prepare hazmat for air transport must comply with the 55th edition of IATA’s Dangerous Goods Regulations.  This online course covers the IATA hazmat air shipping rules that US shippers must follow in addition to 49 CFR.
Avoid costly port delays! Hazmat vessel shipments must be packaged, marked, labeled, and documented in compliance with the International Maritime Organization’s IMDG Code, Amendment 36-12. Designed for shore-side shipping personnel, this online course covers the IMO rules that US shippers must follow in addition to 49 CFR.
Comprehensive Training Options 
Employees who oversee hazmat shipping operations or sign shipping papers should complete a more in depth, comprehensive hazmat training program.
*[49 CFR 172.704(c)] and [IMDG Code 1.3.1.]

More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.

I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!

This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!

The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.

Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.

The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
