Hazmat Training created by hazmat shippers for hazmat shippers.

Compliance is about more than just choosing the correct packaging. The Department of Transportation requires hazmat employees to be trained and certified every 2 years for Air / IATA, and every 3 years for Ground / 49 CFR and Ocean / IMDG. Our courses are perfect for both initial and recurrent certification.

Customer support

2-3 years is a long time. That's why all our training options come with unlimited customer support for as long as your certification is valid. Call or email anytime with questions - Chemtran's team is here for you.

Chemtran USA is proud to offer online training at HalfDayHazmatTraining.com.
