Including the OSHA and DOT International Harmonization Requirements ANY Person Engaged in ANY Activity Involving Hazardous Materials and Waste MUST Successfully Complete an Annual/Triennial Training & Testing Program 


Federal law requires all persons engaged any activity involving hazardous materials, substances, chemicals and waste to complete an updated training program on the Federal regulations requiring compliance.

THE “Critical Interface” PROBLEM

Compliance may become clearer when the “INTERFACE” is laid out as per the chart. For example, when one of the 50,000 plus Hazardous Materials is in transportation, it is subject to the DOT Regulations in 49 CFR. When used in-plant, it now is subject to the OSHA Regulations in 29 CFR. When it no longer has a value and will be discarded, it is subject to the joint DOT/EPA/OSHA Regulations in 49/ 40/29 CFRs.


1 ATTENDEE: $450
2-5 ATTENDEES: $420
6-10 ATTENDEES: $405
11 OR MORE: $355

If, at any time in either of these three areas, it is released or discharged from its container into the environment in an “RQ” quantity, and is not recovered, it is now a Hazardous Substance and is subject to the reporting responsibilities of the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, and SARA/Title III. Understanding these interfaces is one of the objectives of the seminar.


The Training is designed to meet the requirements for:

U.S. & State Departments of Transportation (Section 172.700, 49 CFR)

State and Federal DOT regulations require each shipper, generator, carrier and transporter to instruct and test all company officials, employees or agents on the applicable hazardous materials regulations pertaining to their job functions and contact with hazardous materials and substances on a triennial basis.

U.S. & State Environmental Protection Agencies (Part 262, 262.14, 262.25, 262.16, 262.17 and 265.16, 40 CFR) 

State and Federal EPA regulations require each generator and owner/operator of a TSD Facility to ensure that all employees engaged in any activity involving hazardous waste successfully complete a training program on the applicable DOT, OSHA and EPA regulations. This requirement must be carried out on an annual basis

Occupational Safety & Health Administration (Sections 1910.120, 1910.1200, 29 CFR)

Protect your employees that are exposed to hazardous chemicals and substances in the workplace. That's why this seminar includes the First Responder Awareness level certification for hazmat employees in the event of a hazardous substance release; annual training.


Managers and company personnel responsible for compliance with the DOT/EPA/OSHA regulations for hazardous materials, substances, chemicals or waste.
Managers and company personnel who must instruct others on applicable DOT/EPA/OSHA regulations.
Company hazmat and waste employees who need either the required initial or annual update training.

IATA Training Seminar

Shipping Dangerous Goods by Air 1-Day Update for Shippers, Packagers & Freight Forwarders


Most dangerous goods shipped by air are not shipped solely under the Department of Transportation’s Hazardous Materials Regulations in 49 CFR. When shipping by air (including transport to and from the airport), hazardous materials, or dangerous goods, must comply with both DOT and ICAO (IATA) Regulations, which are similar but not the same. With Transportation Skills Programs’ long history of providing DOT Hazmat Training for over thirty years, we are proud to announce the NEW 1-Day Biennial Update for Shipping Dangerous Goods under IATA.


1 ATTENDEE (with out book): $475


  • YOU MUST HAVE ATTENDED THE COMPLIANCE SEMINAR or DOT training before attending this course.

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who classifies, packages, marks, or labels dangerous goods shipments or completes and/or signs dangerous goods shipping papers for shipment (domestically or internationally) in the air mode under the IATA and DOT regulations, including freight forwarders. Because of the complex nature of the hazardous materials and dangerous goods transportation regulations, this seminar has been developed for individuals who already have experience with DOT and/or IATA regulations – those who have been trained, tested and certified in the past 2 years. Attendees should have a basic knowledge of classification; documentation (shipping papers); packaging; labeling and marking.

Why Should I Attend This Seminar?

It is almost impossible to ship by air using solely one set of regulations. Air shippers need to utilize both DOT and IATA regulations. This course is designed to help attendees get comfortable with using the IATA regulations and understand their responsibilities within the regulations. Transportation Skills Programs, Inc. has been providing DOT, EPA and OSHA training for over 30 years. With the increase in air shipments and demand for IATA dangerous goods training, it is a natural extension of our expertise in hazmat shipping. We can now bring our long experience and support in the hazmat & waste industries to air shipment training as well.

Material To Be Covered

  • Classification

  • Shipping papers

  • Packaging, Labeling, Marking

  • Interface with DOT Regulations (49 CFR)

  • Training Requirement

  • Emergency Response Information

  • Security Plans

  • Upcoming IATA regulatory changes in 2013

  • DOT and IATA regulatory changes in the past year

Attendees Will Receive:

  • IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations Workbook

  • IATA Addendums

  • Assistance with ongoing operations

All attendees must have a copy of the current IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations at the class. Attendees may bring their own copy or we can provide one for an additional fee (See Pricing in Drop-Down Registration Menu).


Attendees must have:

  1. Attended an IATA Dangerous Goods training course in the past 2 years; OR

  2. Attended the Transportation Skills Programs’ Hazardous Materials & Waste Management Training, Testing & Compliance Seminar
    (or equivalent) in the past 2 yrs.

Note: This course is not designed for those new employees with no hazmat training.

Also, we do not cover radioactive, explosives or lithium batteries.



In-House Information 

Do you have employees who need to be trained, but you can’t spare the time or money to send them out to a seminar? Do you want your employees trained in a program specifically designed for your company?



We offer an In-House Training Program that is:

  • Conducted at YOUR convenience — at a time and location of your choice.

  • Tailored to fit your company’s unique needs. Why send your group to a generic seminar when you can have one created for you?

  • Cost-effective, with a low cost per employee.

Combine In-House Training with our Schedule of Seminars

Are you thinking it will be impossible to get all your employees together for an in-house seminar, but you want the convenience & control of offering your own class? We can work with this too, by offering you an in-house for the majority of your employees, and allowing the rest to attend one of our many scheduled seminars throughout the United States. For example, say you have 50 employees requiring training. Of those, only 40 can attend your In-house seminar. You could schedule training for all 50 (and pay the low per-person In-house fee), with 40 to attend at your location and 10 to attend any of our seminars convenient to them. Or, what if some of the 40 can’t attend the In-house due to illness or an emergency at your location?  These people would also be able to receive their training at another of our seminars.  Using this combination of In-house training and our scheduled seminars, you can train all your people at the lowest cost and most convenience.  Simply call our office to discuss your training needs in advance and we will gladly discuss this training option with you.

We Work With You

We will work around your schedule and train at your facility or another location convenient to your employees.  We can work with the length of training program you want, from eight hours on up.  And the training can be conducted at the times you need.  We will create a program that specifically addresses the regulations affecting you.

We can work with you to create a seminar tailored to your specific needs. All prices are for single days and include the TSP Hazardous Materials, Substances and Wastes Compliance Kit.

Note: Instructor’s travel expenses, meeting room, lunch and breaks are the responsibility of your company. Above pricing for Compliance seminar only (includes all training materials). Additional fees apply to Train-The-Trainer and IATA courses. Call for more details.
