About Workshops

PHMSA offers Hazmat transportation training workshops and webinars throughout the year. These free training opportunities are for anyone who offers or transports hazardous materials in commerce, or has a desire to learn more about DOT's Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR).

Hazardous Materials Transportation Training One-Day Workshops

PHMSA's Hazardous Materials Safety Assistance Team conducts workshops specialized to meet the needs of industry or the public safety community. These free one-day events are scheduled across the nation to help meet the needs of local communities.

Transportation workshops provide a basic overview of the regulatory requirements - what they are, how they apply, and how to comply with them - for shipping and transporting Hazardous Materials. The workshops address the same information as the Hazmat Basics track given at the Multimodal Seminars and include overviews of the Training and Security Requirements.

Public safety workshops are specifically designed to help emergency responders understand the Hazardous Materials Regulations as set forth in CFR 49. The seminars cover the use of the Emergency Response Guidebook, locating emergency response information, and information that every emergency responder should know in order to safeguard themselves and the public.
