    Webinar Frequently Asked Questions - Click here!

    Classroom training may be more suited for you: if you do not use the 49CFR Regulations on a regular basis.

    What is the difference between webinar and online training? Webinars are instructor led and completed in 1 day. Online training is taken on your own, and you have 3 months to complete.

    Are any additional training courses required?

    • Hazmat Security Awareness Training (SAT) - In the United States this additional training is required. DGI offers free SAT on our website.
    • Function Specific Training - As long as you are not in a position where you have to read and interpret the regulations or determine compliance or acceptance, this course is sufficient for those workers following instructions and just handling shipments of Dangerous Goods. 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.
