    Are any additional training courses required?

    • Function Specific Training - If you ship any product other than consumer commodities you will need additional 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.
