Rail HazMat-DOT Hazardous Material Instructor Training (Train the Trainer)



The Rail Workers Hazardous Materials Training Program prides itself on providing the most valuable worker safety training available and most of it is delivered by peer trainers. A major goal of the Rail Program is to build a nationwide pool of skilled peer trainers to deliver hazardous materials training at their jobsites, union meetings, and in their communities.


The DOT-funded Hazardous Materials Instructor Training (HMIT) consists of an 8-hour hazardous materials awareness course followed by five days of train-the-trainer instruction, providing participants the skills and knowledge necessary to deliver hazardous materials training at the local and regional levels.


The funding provides the following student expenses: Air travel, lodging and meals. In addition, an incentive of $175.00 per day is available to all training participants of these programs, except those who are able to secure regular pay through their employer, or are paid union officers.


Programs begin Monday mornings and conclude Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. Students will be required to travel/arrive on Sundays to meet program start times.


To meet this training need, the Rail Program will conduct the following courses:

April 3-9, 2016 - Huntington, WV

May 15-21, 2016 - Chicago, IL
