Hazardous Materials Instructor Training Lithium Battery Virtual Training Course

CVSA will hold a four-hour virtual Hazardous Materials Instructor Training Lithium Battery Training Course training course on Tuesday, Oct. 25. The course will be offered from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. EDT time.

The use of lithium batteries continues to increase, which means more lithium batteries are being transported in commerce, including initial-use lithium batteries and used batteries for recycling. This course will introduce the hazmat employee instructor to the types of lithium batteries and common uses; lithium battery chemistry and safety; lithium battery classification in §173.185, including exceptions; shipping papers, when required; marking; labeling; placarding; emergency response; incident investigation; and undeclared lithium battery shipments.

Register for the Hazardous Materials Instructor Training Lithium Battery Virtual Training Course.

The course is available to Class III Associate Members and non-members of the regulated industry.

The deadline for registration is Tuesday, Oct. 18.

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.
