Meets applicable requirements for recurrent training.

 This 2-day recurrent training course reviews the basic skills needed to prepare, offer, and accept shipments of hazardous materials by ground, air, and water. HMW-155 capitalizes on the harmonization between the three different codes to combine three separate courses into one 2-day session, reducing training time and cost. Instruction will focus on non-bulk packages.
