DOT and IATA Training

DOT and IATA Training
August 5 - 6, 2020

All WVU employees who are responsible for shipping hazardous materials by ground or by air are required to complete DOT/IATA Training.  DOT Training is required for employees to meet the federal requirements of 49 CFR Part 172.704 for certification in hazardous materials handling and transportation.  IATA Training is required for employees who ship hazardous materials by air to meet the International Air Transport Association requirements.  Each individual WVU employee who ships hazardous materials is required an individual certification in DOT and/or IATA as it pertains to his or her duties.  

Environmental Health and Safety offers these courses every two years to ensure employees maintain compliance with these regulations.  Environmental Health and Safety will offer DOT and IATA Training on Wednesday, August 5, 2020 and Thursday, August 6, 2020 from 8:30am - 4:30pm with a break for lunch.  In order to maintain the proper social distancing required by both WVU and the trainer, both classes will be held in the New Agricultural Sciences Building Room G06.  Participants must sit a minimum of 10 feet apart and wear a mask during the entire course each day.

Each participant will receive a training manual.  However, each participant must provide for himself or herself the following reference material(s) for the class(es) in which he or she registered (these materials will not be provided to share as has been the practice in the past):

  • For the DOT Course: 49CFR Parts 100-185
  • For the IATA Course: Dangerous Goods Regulations

All refreshments must be provided by the individual student; lunch will not be provided either day.

Registrations for these courses will close at the end of business on Friday, July 31, 2020.  Please use the registration forms provided to reserve your seat.  You must complete both forms if you wish to attend both courses.   Each course is limited to 20 participants.
