    Materials Required: When beginning the course follow onscreen prompts to download and print the student workbook. It would also be beneficial to have a copy of the current IATA Regulations. If you need a current copy, we suggest purchasing one from DG Supply at 800-347-7879.

    Are any additional training courses required?

    • Function Specific Training- Ultimately (in the United States) your employer has final responsibility for determining if a hazmat employee is properly trained for their particular job function. Since there is a potential for limitless types of job functions as determined by an individual employer, we as your training provider can only suggest what types of additional training might be required.

      If you are shipping any of the following items, additional training may be required:

      • Hazardous Materials other than Dry Ice, Liquid Nitrogen or Infectious Substances
      • Regulated medical wastes
