DOT Announces Million Dollar Hazmat Grant Program
Like most hazardous materials transportation grants, the $1 million program is funded largely through registration fees collected from hazmat shippers and carriers on an annual basis. Learn more about hazmat registration fees here, including who must register with DOT in order to ship or transport hazardous materials. These fees are typically due on June 30 of each year.
More information about the hazmat grant program is available at Grants.gov, which lists a July 1, 2016 closing date for applications.
Hazmat Training in Detroit, Cincinnati, and Columbus
US DOT made major updates to the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) this month, and the revised rules take effect on July 5. The 49 CFR hazmat shipping requirements change constantly, and signing shipping papers without current training is a major liability. Be confident you know what it takes to keep your shipments in compliance with the latest rules; spot red flags; and avoid fines up to $75,000 per day, per violation.
Don’t miss the Hazardous Materials Transportation Certification Workshop when it comes to Detroit on June 20–21, Cincinnati on June 21–22, and Columbus on June 27–28. Meet DOT’s three-year training requirement for ALL hazmat employees and learn new and changing rules you must know to maintain compliance.

I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
The course was very informative and presented in a way that was easily understood and remembered. I would recommend this course.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
Lion does a great job summarizing and communicating complicated EH&S-related regulations.
Sr. Environmental Engineer
The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.
Material Release Agent
Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
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!
Process & Resource Administrator
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
Lion's online training is more comprehensive, has better slides, and is a superior training experience than what I would get from other trainers.
