CVSA will hold an in-person Introduction to Hazardous Materials Instructor Training (HMIT) Course Aug. 30-Sept. 1 in St. Louis, Missouri. HMIT is a Train the Trainer course for hazardous materials (hazmat) instructors who conduct training on Hazardous Materials Regulations for hazmat employees.
This three-day HMIT course will introduce hazmat instructors to the tools they need to confidently train hazmat employees on the requirements in Title 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Subpart H in Part 172. The course will include instruction, presentations, work projects, team exercises and presentations, individual assignments and coursework, and a pre-test and post-test. Prior to attending this training, you should already have some knowledge of the hazardous materials table, shipping papers, marking, labeling and placarding.
This course WILL NOT cover 49 CFR Part 172 in detail but will provide a high-level overview of the regulations. This course also serves as a refresher course for current instructors who teach hazmat employees.
The deadline for registration is Tuesday, Aug. 16.
This training course was made possible by a Hazardous Materials Instructor Training grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
