Online DOT Hazardous Materials Training

The DOT also regulates the transportation of hazardous materials, and such material must be prepared in accordance with the DOT Hazardous Materials Regulations of 49 CFR 100-185 (HMR). Violators can have their shipments rejected and returned and/or be penalized (up to $186,610 per civil violation).
