By the end of 2015, the Dangerous Goods Trainers Association (DGTA) will have developed a Train-the-Trainer course for veterans, Native Americans, under or unemployed disadvantaged individuals, low income earners and CDL drivers who have lost their ratings due to medical or other reasons. They intend to pilot and deliver the course in the first half of 2016. Funded by a grant from The DOT’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), these funds were made available to DGTA for the purpose of training hazardous materials employees. DGTA, through its members, intends to deliver an instructor training program and take the initiative in delivering standardized curriculums, and assessment tools to determine student needs and effectiveness of training and its trainers.

DGTA promotes exceptional competence and professional standards while providing resources and representation for dangerous goods trainers worldwide. To learn more about the Train-the-Trainer program, or to consider joining DGTA (only $250/year), click here for more information.
