Hazmat Ground Certification

DOT Training

TDG offers DOT training certification for shipper, forwarder, carrier, and individual completion. We offer full-acceptance, commodity-specific, and hazmat general awareness DOT training, all of which provide employees a comprehensive understanding of the Department of Transportation’s hazmat guidelines and give them the qualifications necessary to safely and proficiently ship dangerous goods. Coming soon, we will be introducing a core module, DG Masters (TM), that can be used for all of our modal programs. It will be about a six (6) hour program.

Qualified instructors and consultants with over 30 years of experience in dangerous goods logistics management teach all of TDG’s DOT training certificate programs. At Transportation Development Group, we provide comprehensive hazmat training that includes customized webinars, public seminars, plus online & onsite training courses to fulfill the specific DOT hazmat training requirements under Part 172.702 for your business.
