Dangerous goods online hazmat training coming soon to a computer near you!

In a weakened economy, sending employees to an outside training course for a day or more becomes more costly than ever. You're not only spending money for tuition, but you also must factor in travel costs, possible hotel accommodations, meals and perhaps most notably, the decrease in productivity in your office because your employees are training somewhere else.

Online training courses offer the perfect solution to limiting the cost to your company's wallet and productivity by allowing employees to complete these courses at designated times and/or intervals. Spend an extra hour at work each day for a week to complete an online hazmat training course and comply with all domestic and international regulations for transporting dangerous goods. Or spend one day over the weekend to complete an online hazmat course from the comfort of your own home. Online training courses are also generally cheaper than courses with a physical location that require instructors and other overhead expenses to the training provider that are passed on to the student.

The Bureau of Dangerous Goods, Ltd. is a well-recognized global training provider for multi-modal dangerous goods transport. We believe that by empowering students with dangerous goods/hazmat knowledge, students can return to the workplace and translate that to a safer and more efficient working environment. We have taken this philosophy of training and compiled it into several online training courses to be offered in the near future.

All of our hazmat training courses online comply with training requirements set forth under 49 CFR, Subpart H and IATA section 1.5.2, 1.6 and Table 1.5A.
