Our Training Approach

HMTC Training & Consulting has developed a uniquely effective, step-by-step, process-oriented training approach.  It is designed to assure that each participant becomes an appropriately trained, self-sufficient transportation worker for our customer.  It is our goal to ensure that each participant is not only familiar with the appropriate transportation regulations, but that he/she understands the simple, systematic process that leads to compliance.  Each and every participant is important to us and receives all the tools and attention necessary to assure successful completion of the training.


HMTC provides three levels of training based on job function.  Respectively, the three levels are designed for:

                   Those Who Do
                   Those Who Decide and Supervise
                   Those Who Certify

HMTC, in association with Vivid Learning Systems, has developed and offers web-based training to meet the training requirements for Those Who Do.  These are employees who are responsible for compliance activities such as picking (???), packaging, marking, labeling, documenting, loading and unloading packages of regulated materials.  Interactive courses provide students at this level with all applicable materials and skills to meet their general awareness, function specific, safety and security awareness training requirements.  Lesson plans for these courses are based on specific regulation-based learning objectives.  Each objective is identified, covered in training, tested, and certified as achieved.  The web-based training includes record keeping and certificates for all participants.  Tuition for this level of training varies based on the specific course and number of students within a company requiring the training.  Tuition begins as low as $5 per student, per course.

HMTC’s training for Those Who Decide and Supervise is done primarily through instructor-delivered courses.  Individuals at this level must have comprehensive knowledge and understanding so that proper and compliant decisions are made.  Initial training is best done through a structured program that allows participants to interact with a subject-matter expert and learn for themselves exactly how to apply all necessary regulations.  Once initial training is completed, recurrent training at this level can be done through web-based courses that are both cost-effective and a very efficient way of carrying out review and communicating regulatory changes.

Training for Those Who Certify is HMTC’s core function .  Through years of experience with all types of hazards and shipments, HMTC is able to provide a unique classroom setting for this highest training level.  The trainer’s perspective is based not only on a comprehensive knowledge of the applicable regulations, but on interactions with literally thousands of individuals and experience with many thousands of shipments.  Whether as a result of personal relationships with regulators or of working through a wide variety of difficult shipments with customers, HMTC is well-equipped to present unique  opportunities for its customers to learn and grow.  The goal of every training class is to create successful, self-sufficient individuals who can ensure compliant and safe shipments for their employers.


HMTC’s services don’t end when the training class is completed.  We want to maintain an ongoing relationship with each of our customers, bolster their confidence and help assure their success in the transportation world.  To this end, we offer free consulting for all of our training customers.  When shipping questions arise, an e-mail or a quick telephone call gives our customers access to the experience and expertise of the HMTC staff. 

Providing the highest level of training and consulting service to our customers is HMTC’s primary goal each and every day.
