Instructions for Enrolling DOT Certificates


  • These certificates are required for learners that ship hazardous materials.


  • As learners need the various shipment certification.

  • This training reoccurs every 3 years for shipments in the US.
  • Every 2 years for International shipments


  • Access to CU Learn


Trainings for specific DOT hazardous materials are within various certificates- see the list below for each specific hazard. EHS also hosts TWO – 1 day long trainings (one for Infectious Substances and one for Chemicals) so a learner can receive certification in all the hazards. These certificates require renewal every 3 years when shipping in the United States and every 2 years if shipping internationally. CU Learn will send an email notification when it is time to renew your training.

Within each Certificate there are 2 classes- General Awareness and then the specific hazard.  If you are taking these certificates for multiple hazards, CU Learn will recognize the learner having completed General Awareness for each hazard- so this will not have to be repeated for each hazard class you wish to certify for.
