Will I have access to the online training once I have completed it?

How long is an online training course?

The duration of each course depends on the topic. Courses range from 10 minutes to just under 4 hours.

Do I need any course materials for an online training course?

  • A PDF (a handout) of the presentation is available to print at the start of the course.
  • You will also need a copy of the current regulations for the course(s) you are taking.
    1. 49 CFR for ground courses in the US
    2. TDG for ground courses in Canada
    3. IATA for air courses
    4. IMDG for ocean courses

Do I have to take a test?

Quiz questions are provided throughout the presentation at the end of most sections to ensure understanding of the content. At the end of the course, all quiz question answers will be tallied and upon achieving an 80% or better, a certificate of completion will automatically be available to you in your training account.

What happens if I don’t pass the test?

You have five attempts to obtain a score of 80% or higher answering the quiz questions. If you don’t succeed on your first attempt, you may re-take the online training up to five times.

Will I be certified upon completion of the online training course?

Once you obtain an 80% or better answering the quiz questions, a certificate of completion will be available to you in your training account. It is your employer’s responsibility to determine if you are certified to do the job at hand. Once he/she signs your certificate, you will be certified.

How many people can take an online training course?

Each course purchased is good for one (1) participant.

Why are the online training courses so much shorter than a live class?

Although the content is the same, being in a live classroom allows for instant question and answer time, along with hands–on exercises for all of the participants which adds time to the length of the course.
