Our Approach

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 offers concise private (on-site) training designed to meet the training requirements for Those Who Do. These are employees who are responsible for compliance activities such as picking materials, packaging, marking, labeling, documenting, and 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. Tuition for this level of training varies based on the specific course and number of students within a company requiring the training.
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 provides 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.
