DOT Hazardous Materials Transportation:
If your company ships hazardous materials? Do you accept hazmat shipments? Are your employees certified to ship hazmat? If your answer to any of the above is “yes” then you probably already know Compliance Solutions. If you’re new to shipping hazmat or just found out you need hazmat training you need to get to know us! Compliance Solutions is the nations largest private provider of hazmat training. Since 1995 we have helped companies across North America comply with DOT hazmat shipping regulations (49 CFR 172.704) and saved them thousands of dollars in the process!
According to the DOT (The U.S.Department of Transportation) any company involved in the transport of hazardous materials by air, rail, ground or water must provide Hazmat transportaiton certification within 90 days of an employee starting work. Our DOT Hazmat Complete training is a one-day seminar designed to certify your employees in transporting hazardous materials. DOT regulations state: “Any person involved in offering a hazardous material for transportation must be properly trained…sic” Upon completion you will be able to:
Demonstrate the correct methods used for the shipping, handling and transporting of hazardous materials
Identify the proper shipping methods for hazardous materials in air, water, and land.
Recognize information needed on shipping papers for specific types of hazardous wastes
Utilize proper labeling, marking, and placarding required for hazardous waste transportation
Develop information gathering techniques needed for required incident reporting and emergency notification
Show an understanding of the documentation for shipping papers and manifests.
After your initial training, you need to refresh your certification every 3 years or when the regulations "substantially change". This course qualifies as the “initial” training or “refresher” training. Be advised that should your certification lapse, you may not take part in any hazardous materials shipping functions “unsupervised” until your certification has been renewed. New employees may perform hazardous materials shipping functions for the first 90-days provided they have direct supervision. After this time they must be certified.
Compliance Solutions DOT Hazmat Certification Course uses a unique "10-step approach" for shipping and handling hazardous materials properly. Each element is covered in detail through use of "real-world" examples of what “to do” and “what NOT to do” when shipping hazardous materials.
DOT regulations require all students to pass a certification exam which is given at the end of the course. A Certificate of Completion signed by the Instructor and Compliance Solutions, along with a personalized wallet card will be issued upon successfully passing the exam and completing the course requirements.
Industries using DOT Transportation certification include but are not limited to:
Package Delivery Companies
Medical Supply Delivery Companies
Home Medical Supply Companies
Chemical Manufacturing or Shipping
Environmental firms that package and ship hazardous waste
Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities
Please be advised: Extensive Student participation and interaction during this class is REQUIRED. Students must complete hands-on exercises designed to prepare them for shipping of hazardous materials in the workplace. If you are not prepared to interact with other students and the instructor during class, we suggest you consider taking a web-based (online) DOT Hazmat Initial or Refresher training courses instead.
Registration Note: This event does NOT issue paper tickets. After registration you will receive an email confirmation from Compliance Solutions that includes the date, time and location of your class. Prior to registering read a copy of our cancellation and refund policy. Once registered, you acknowledge you have read and agree to be bound by our this policy.
THE #1 PUBLISHING EVENT FOR BUSINESS GROWTH
Since starting GETPUBLISHED, we've wanted to create a one-day conference that would serve as the catalyst for savvy speakers, marketers, businesses, pastors and entrepreneurs around the world to easily build the strategies, relationships, and expertise they need to rapidly get their book published.
It's called GetPublished Summit 2019, and it will bring hundreds of innovative speakers, business owners, thought leaders, and key influencers together for a one-day journey, taking you from optimizing every point of your message though the final outcome - your published book.
Here’s What to Expect:
You should plan on coming prepared and ready to get the full overview of the publishing world today. Our presenter, Michael Stickler, is fast paced, knowledgeable and has the first-hand experience as an author and publisher of a great variety of books. Your needs are in mind in his approach to the overall learning experience. As an entrepreneur, Mike will show you the path of taking your idea from concept to print form. But, more than that, he’ll give you tools on how to sell it to your choice audience. He makes a commitment to give you everything you need to propel your story forward. And he’ll take time to answer every question you have.
Why Should You Invest the Time:
Time seems to be the only finite thing in life. And we are cognizant of the fact that the investment of your time is a sacrificial one. So, we promise to baptize you with the information and every conversion point to determine the best publishing path for you.
Your Book’s Purpose
Traditional v. Self-Publishing Models
Unforeseen pitfalls made frequently by authors
Print v. E-Book v. Audio Books
And Much, Much, More
Engage with industry thought-leaders who will transform the way you think about telling your story.
Mike is an author of over forty books and trainings, entrepreneur, radio host and a highly sought-after motivational speaker. His best-selling book, A Journey to Generosity, is widely acclaimed throughout the Christian community. He is the publisher of "Generous Living Magazine" and writes for the Christian Post, 'A Generous Life' column. He has a new book coming this fall.
He lives near Lake Tahoe, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada range, with his wife, Kim, and has two grown sons, daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren.
Art Ritter graduated from the University of Minnesota – Institute of Technology as an Electrical Engineer – and Reserve Officer Training Corp student. Commissioned and married upon graduation, he and Georgia, his wife of 51 years, spent the next 26 years in U.S. Air Force life – Art flying as a navigator and electronic warfare officer (serving in both Viet Nam, Taiwan, and Korea) and stateside, in various organizational levels of the staff, mostly writing and speaking – Georgia, packing moving, and unpacking (and repeating) while raising their two daughters and creating a gift shop finally settled in the Lss Vegas valley.
While in service and soon after his retirement, Art earned Masters degrees in both Public and Business Administration and upon retirement from the Air Force began a consulting practice with start-ups – for-profit and non-profit, to include churches.
GetPublished Summit 2019 will be an immersive and invaluable experience taking place over one, very full, action-packed day.
Your day will be made up of engaging presentations from one of the new leaders and brightest minds in the publishing industry, each designed to take you on a step-by-step journey through every conversion point in publishing — from manuscript creation, generating traffic, to converting that traffic into leads and sales, and, ultimately, converting those sales into customers for life.
