If you ship anything classified as Dangerous Goods or Hazmat, from common lithium batteries to explosives — and anything in between — your staff needs proper training with a certificate of completion for employer certification. No exceptions!

Fortunately, DB Schenker provides training solutions to help you satisfy hazardous materials training requirements for any mode of transportation. We offer both initial and recurrent courses in a variety of settings (see below for course offerings).

Three Convenient Training Options to Serve You

We offer three easy ways to get your staff trained and certified:

Online DG Training
Our online Dangerous Goods and Hazardous Materials Training solutions allow students to satisfy hazardous materials training requirements at their own convenience and pace.

This economical solution is perfect for when you want to train at your own pace, or if you need to get a handful of students certified who are on different schedules. Just select the training you need, pay and login.

Live Webinar Programs
Customized Dangerous Goods/Hazmat Webinar training allows for a combination of online training along with real-time feedback and guidance, tailored to your needs, provided by one of our certified instructors. It can be customized for any course.

Our webinar programs allow you to save time and travel costs when you have employees spread across multiple locations.

Instructor-Led Programs
For those who prefer in-person training in a classroom setting, DB Schenker can arrange for one of our experienced, certified instructors to conduct any of our courses on-site at your place of business, or off-site.

Instructor-Led Programs are ideal for those who prefer personalized, one-on-one training, or if you need to get several employees certified at once.
