Course and General Information

Target Audience

The target audience is:

  • Class III Associate Members
  • Qualified CVSA non-members who train hazmat employees

Class size is limited to 30 students. The number of attendees from a single company/business may be limited.


Prior experience as an instructor is preferred but not required. Participants should be familiar with 49 CFR Parts 171 and 172 and know how to use the hazardous materials table in Part 172.

This course WILL NOT cover 49 CFR Part 172 in detail. Prior to attending this training, you should already have a working knowledge of the hazardous materials table, shipping papers, marking, labeling and placarding.

Participants who are interested in taking refresher courses on Parts 171 and 172 may access online courses and webinars through the CVSA member portal. After you’ve logged in, click on the CVSA Learning tab, then select “Hazmat” to access online training courses and webinar archives.

What to Expect

All training materials will be provided, including hazardous materials and safety regulations, emergency response guidebooks, the CVSA North American Standard Out-of-Service Criteria, highlighters and pens. Students will be given an online pre-test prior to the class and a post-test at the end. The post-test will be an individual effort using only the books and materials provided during the class. To successfully pass the class and receive a certificate of completion, the student must pass the post-test with a minimum score of 70%. A student who receives a score of less than 70% or chooses not to take the post-test will receive a certificate of attendance.
