  DOT Training for Drivers of HAZMAT Shipments This course is designed to meet DOT requirements to train each hazmat employee who "drives a motor vehicle containing hazardous material." Because more hazardous materials are transported on highways than all other modes of transportation combined, DOT requires that hazmat drivers have highway-specific training, in addition to the basic hazmat training. This course provides basic hazmat training for drivers plus the highway-specific training in pre-trip safety inspections, general vehicle operation information, vehicle attendance requirements, and safe loading and unloading. This course can be used for either new employees or as refresher training.
