New Hazmat Special Permit Applications
- Modify permits to add materials, packaging types, product designs, or approved carriers.
- Authorize the transportation in commerce of hazardous materials for about 2,400 feet without proper hazard communication.

PHMSA granted eight hazmat special permits, including one “to authorize the transportation of cargo tanks manufactured after August 31, 1995 for which the Manufacturer’s Certificate of Compliance is missing” and another “to authorize the transportation of heat pipes containing anhydrous ammonia by cargo-only aircraft.”

The course was very informative and presented in a way that was easily understood and remembered. I would recommend this course.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.

I attended training from another provider and learned absolutely nothing. Lion is much better. Hands down.
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!

As always, Lion never disappoints
The instructor had knowledge of regulations and understanding of real-world situations. The presentation style was engaging and fostered a positive atmosphere for information sharing.
