What can disqualify you from getting a hazmat endorsement?
According to an article by Jim Reese in GoingGreen.com, the answer:
Employees of hazmat transportation companies must undergo a minimum-of trainings and exams to qualify for an endorsement – including certification from their training employers…The FRA requires that applicants be certified by equally qualified organizations to contain as much risk as possible (NIOSH and ATEX). Only then they might qualify for hazmat licenses.
Bizarrely enough, when asked if she would hire someone who wanted “an ethical dilemma” on the job, and was answering disqualifying question, one of Sara Blakely’s answers included: “I will only hire those who want to apply their knowledge and creative thinking skills towards solving problems.”
How do i know when my hazmat endorsement expires?
They usually expire at the end of three years. Sometimes more, but generally three years.
How much hazardous material can i haul without a hazmat endorsement?
You can’t have a hazmat endorsement if your load is less than 75lbs or on a vessel weighing 30 days or less. Your load must be inside your vehicle, not in a box that weights 55 pounds outside of the vehicle. Once your full load at 30 or less, you get an unlimited bill of lading (something they send to the post office before they deliver the shipment). As long as all the items don’t exceed the maximum weight limit you sail through. If it does, but if you can ship upwards of 100lbs on a lighter value hazmat product you could qualify for a certificate and eventually bigger loads like 400lb containers
How long is a hazmat endorsement good for?
Expires at the end of the year + 1.
How to obtain a hazmat endorsement?
Get certified in blood borne pathogens, communicable diseases and hazardous material transport (with at least 2 years of training) or get a waiver. Most of the time you’ll have to list specific courses for each category, but others will be given conditional waivers. For example if you have 3D modeling software and have taken classes on using it in trainings.
Where can i get fingerprinted for hazmat endorsement?
I don’t know. Try a police department or minimum level of city you live in
How to get hazmat endorsement in california?
To get hazmat endorsement in California, you must pass the GHS (general hazardous material) written exam. The exam is six hours long, and consists of some tough reading comprehension questions, as well as 300 multiple choice questions related to the hazards associated with H2S gas, hydrogen chloride, etc. There are only three allowed breaks during the test – one for about 20 minutes at the end of Day 1 and then two for about 20 minutes at the beginning of Day 2. After you finish it once, you can re-take it up to three times on different dates. Each subsequent attempt will be open book (no calculators) and take longer than the previous one – usually averaging 60-75 minutes per subsequent attempt. I don’t recommend doing your re-takes on consecutive days because they’ll cost you more time each time.
The actual test has a lot of time dedicated to it that really doesn’t show up on my top results page after I have entered my stats here at Quora: 2012 December – 250 hours 2013 September – 177 hours
