ARTEMUS Transportation Solutions, a leader in the web-based trade compliance software industry, will commence online training for HAZMAT employees to receive Hazardous Certification in compliance with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s federal regulations.

In accordance with the DOT’s hazardous materials regulation, a HAZMAT employer must ensure that its employees is trained conforming with the requirements of 49 CFR 172.704(a). Artemus’ eight-hour training course is in compliance with the requirements of 49 CFR 172.704(a) and will also educate on general awareness of handling hazardous materials.

Employees who prepare, transport or offer hazardous materials for shipment are required by the employer to provide documented training that meet the requirements of CFR 172.704. Major penalties and fines for non-compliance will be assigned if there is not proper certification. Artemus’ Hazardous Certification training is available online with access to an instructor, message boards, online textbook and terms search.

“With technology and the Internet becoming increasingly important to the industry, we realized the convenience of having these courses available online,” said Steve Pniewski, President-CEO of Artemus. “Having the ability to become certified without leaving your desk helps HAZMAT employees save time and avoid missing valuable work days.”

Various topics will be covered throughout training such as hazardous cargo packaging requirements, shipping papers, placards, security and classification. Employees will receive a certification of satisfactory completion after passing the final exam and will be certified for three years.
