Event Description

This 5 day introductory-level course covers the basic skills needed to prepare, offer and accept shipments of hazardous materials by ground, air and water.  HMT-150 capitalizes on the harmonization between the three different codes to combine three separate courses (HMT-100, HMT-200 and HMT-300) into one 5-day session reducing training costs, travel expenses and time out of the office.  Instruction will focus on non-bulk packages.

 Meets applicable requirements for initial and recurrent training.
