Hazmat University Celebrates Its 10th Anniversary of Delivering Quality Online Dangerous Goods Training

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla: Hazmat University, known in the industry for its comprehensive online training, is celebrating a decade of providing quality, instructor-developed online dangerous goods / hazardous material training intended for shippers, freight forwarders, and hazmat employees involved in the handling, shipping, and/or transportation of dangerous goods.

In the fall of 2009, after over a quarter century of providing classroom-based instruction, onsite training, software, and consulting, the Bureau of Dangerous Goods created Hazmat University Online Training to provide online students the same comprehensive training offered in classroom and onsite settings, for which the Bureau has long been known as an industry leader.

We are proud to say that since the inception of the Hazmat University online training platform, many thousands of participants have completed training, with a dramatic growth in course volume over the years. Never content to rest on our success, we are always developing and updating content to address regulatory and industry needs, in addition to continuously incorporating innovative technology.

A Unique Learning Platform Tailored for the Shipping Industry

A broad range of industries rely on a steady supply of both raw and processed materials utilized in the production of goods. From agriculture to manufacturing, materials classified as dangerous goods are used daily to produce everyday items used and purchased by consumers and businesses alike.

Such materials require that shippers comply with stringent Federal and International Regulations which prescribe the requirements for classification, identification, packaging, marks, labels, placards, and documentation if required and so much more in order to ensure both public and environmental safety. Those who are responsible for transporting such materials by ground, air, or vessel are required to undergo training and certification.

At Hazmat University, our regulatory and training professionals continue to develop courses intended to increase training productivity, with greater flexibility and value than ever, such as our new Limited Quantities and Lithium Batteries online training courses. As we move forward into our 11th year and beyond, we look forward to continued growth and the introduction of new and streamlined online training offerings.
