Posted on 6/3/2021 by Lion Technology Inc.

The City Beautiful plays host to Lion Technology’s DOT and IATA hazmat training workshops on August 16—18! Join us to develop a step-by-step process to safely prepare and offer hazmat shipments, by ground and air, in full compliance with the latest 49 CFR Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) and the 2021 IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR).

Lion instructors are thrilled to get back in the classroom and connect with new and returning hazardous materials professionals. When in-person DOT hazmat training returns to Orlando, Lion will adhere to all Federal, State, and local protocols to protect student health and safety.

Who Needs DOT Hazmat Training?

Do you or your employees classify and name hazardous materials? Select, assemble, fill, or close packages? Mark, label, or placard packages or vehicles? Do you fill out and/or sign shipping papers? Or load or unload hazardous materials?

If you do, join us for DOT and IATA hazmat training in O-Town! US DOT requires hazmat training for all “hazmat employees,” defined in the HMR as anyone whose actions can directly affect the safe transportation of hazardous materials (49 CFR 171.8).
 
“Fantastic course. The instructor executed the material perfectly. Made the course engaging and exciting!”
Sarah G., Transportation Coordinator | Sanford, FL

For new hazmat employees, DOT requires training within 90 days of hire or assignment. Recurrent hazmat training is required at least once every three years (49 CFR 172.704). Failure to provide hazmat training for employees can subject your site to a minimum civil penalty of $508 per employee, per day.

Training to Simplify Hazmat Compliance

At the Orlando DOT and IATA workshops, collaborate and learn with other hazmat shippers during three days of dynamic, interactive learning. Over 200,000 Lion students trust Lion for hazmat training classes because our instructors, curriculum, and resource materials are the best in the industry.

At the two-day DOT Hazmat Ground Shipper Certification Workshop in Orlando, we will cover mandated training elements for all hazmat employees: General awareness, security awareness, and function-specific hazmat training. On August 18, join us to learn the unique, additional IATA DGR requirements you must know to offer hazmat air shipments by cargo or passenger aircraft with major airlines, including UPS and FedEx. 

Lion’s hazmat instructors teach using every-day language and relatable, real world examples to help you get comfortable navigating and using the domestic and international regulations that impact your hazmat shipments.

Why Attend Hazmat Training in Orlando?

“Lion is by far the best. The instructors are able to keep students informed and engaged.”
Peter H., Waste Water Operator | Apopka, FL

Why do EH&S pros consistently say that Lion’s hazmat workshops are the best? Over 200,000 professionals rely on Lion workshops because our instructors and course materials provide an unmatched learning experience. Lion Technology training has been the gold standard in the regulatory compliance industry for more than 40 years. 

Lion instructors have credentials as educators and real-life experience in diverse industries. At hazmat classes for small businesses, major multinationals, and everyone in between, our instructors have seen and heard it all: Rail cars full of spent catalyst, portable tanks hauling liquified petroleum gas (LPG), totes of hazardous food ingredients, freight containers full of boxed aerosol cans, to the ubiquitous 55-gallon drum filled with everything under the sun.
