LEE'S SUMMIT, Mo.
Charles Ayers, president of the Coordinating Committee for Automotive Repair (CCAR), has announced a suite of new HazMatU
courses offered by CCAR
and its affiliate ShipMate Inc.
“Of special interest to original equipment manufacturers, automotive dealers and groups is the fact that the courses have been pared down to the critically essential hazardous material information required for each particular job function,” said Ayers. “This maximizes efficiency and reduces the amount of time needed to learn the content.”
HazMatU courses include a series of learning assessments following each module of instruction and includes a comprehensive exam. The online course will generate a certificate of completion for those persons who receive at least 80 percent score on the examination.
There are nine courses offered, with Spanish-language versions of the Surface Transport of Automotive Hazardous Materials and Multimodal Transport of Automotive Dangerous Goods.
Steven Charles Hunt, president of ShipMate Inc., added, “Each HazMatU course has also been updated to reflect current regulatory requirements including the new provisions for limited quantities, consumer commodities, as well as the requirements for small and large format lithium batteries. They are professionally narrated and include detailed course manuals, a glossary, answers to frequently asked questions, excerpts from applicable regulatory references, supplementary reference materials and links to other useful tools and texts.”
