The 2021 COHMED Conference, which was scheduled to take place in Savannah, Georgia, will instead be offered as a virtual four-day event, scheduled for Jan. 25-28, 2021.
And we have great news: There will be no registration fee. That’s right, it will be free to attend the 2021 Virtual COHMED Conference.
The virtual conference will provide training on regulations, inspections and enforcement related to the roadway transportation of hazardous materials/dangerous goods. If you are involved in hazmat transportation, regulation, enforcement or safety, or are simply interested in learning more about it, the first-ever Virtual COHMED Conference is an online training opportunity you will not want to miss. So, plan to attend and spread the word to your colleagues.
