Training records must include:

  • Completion date of most recent training
  • Description, copy, or location of training materials
  • Name and address of trainer
  • Certification that the HazMat employee has been trained and tested

These records must be maintained throughout employment and 90 days thereafter, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT).

You will be able to print a certificate when you have completed this course that will certify your completion of training for packaging and shipping Division 6.2 (infectious) materials.

IATA requires repeat training every two years. DOT requires training every three years. Laboratory accrediting agencies also require documentation of training that reflects the DOT and ICAO/IATA requirements. The extent of training and the frequency of repeat training required by laboratory accrediting agencies are dependent on:

  • The specimen types that are packaged and shipped by the laboratory (eg, Category A, Category B)
  • Whether the packages are sent to or through the US (DOT regulated) or by air internationally (ICAO/IATA regulated)
