I used the High Road Training Program to study for the HAZMAT endorsement. (Hint: many of the questions on the actual test do not match the ones in the High Road program. But trust me, if you understand the material you should easily pass.) Got my TSA HAZMAT Background Check and went to the DMV to add the H endorsement. OOPS! There is a required ELDT component (certifying you have completed training)!

I searched online, and most places will provide the ELDT HAZMAT training for $99 - $199. I knew there must be something better, so I searched for it. I found an ELDT certified site that will provide the online training and certification for only $25. Do your diligent search. I'm not sure if Brett would Ok such a link in his web site, though.

To be clear: The High Road will provide the best "H" training to pass the test, and the online ELDT $25 certification course won't, but it will get you the ELDT certification you do need.

HAZMAT:

Hazardous Materials

Explosive, flammable, poisonous or otherwise potentially dangerous cargo. Large amounts of especially hazardous cargo are required to be placarded under HAZMAT regulations

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DMV:

Department of Motor Vehicles, Bureau of Motor Vehicles

The state agency that handles everything related to your driver's licences, including testing, issuance, transfers, and revocation.

What state are you in that requires this? I didn’t have to do this in Colorado years ago when I got my hazmat originally. I don’t have the hazmat anymore but have been thinking about getting it again.

Pianoman reminisces:

Years Ago

I'm in Alabama. But the ELDT program is nationwide since last February. So anything before February 7, 2022 is "years ago". If you had the H from the Before Times, you might skate past the ELDT since you have the endorsement.

Incidentally, a TWIC or Hazmat background check gives you a free Pre-Check pass at airports. When anyone asks for the number, add your state two-letter code ("CO") to your driver license number and voila! Get in the short line.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.
