This training is required for anyone who ships hazardous materials or dangerous goods using a ground shipping service. Is This Course DOT Approved? The answer is no, because the DOT, as a matter of policy, will not "approve" anyone's course. If a training vendor tells you otherwise, then you should look elsewhere.
