Inspecting Lithium Battery Shipments Virtual Training Course

CVSA will hold a four-hour virtual training course on Inspecting Lithium Battery Shipments on Tuesday, Oct. 4. 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 roadside inspector 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.

This course is now full.

This course is available to Class I, Class II and Class IV members only.

The deadline for registration is Tuesday, Sep. 27.

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.

This class will be offered every other month through September 2023. Watch the CVSA training website for additional class dates.
