e-Learning for Small Package Shipping, Whenever or Wherever
Home / News / Press Releases /
NIAGARA FALLS, New York—August 11, 2009—When most people hear the term "transportation of hazardous materials," they think of large quantities, such as tank trucks and railway tank cars. But many shippers deal primarily with small packages, such as paint cans or aerosol sprays. Shippers still require training in transportation of hazardous materials, but find that typical hazardous materials courses concentrate on larger shipments.
To fill this gap, ICC Compliance Center has created an e-learning program in shipping small packages. In "Transportation of Small Quantities under 49 CFR", the basic requirements of the Hazardous Materials Regulations of 49 CFR are covered, along with specific procedures for shipping goods as:
- Consumer commodities;
- Limited quantities;
- Small quantities;
- Excepted quantities; and
- De minimis quantities
Each segment will cover the size limits for qualification, and requirements for packaging, marking, and shipping papers. Completion will meet the training requirements for general awareness, job-specific training and security awareness. In less than two hours, you can learn what you need to become a certified hazmat shipper, without the costs of travel or in-house training. Our online format makes it easy to learn at your own pace, whenever or wherever you choose.
