Oh, wow! I just read your profile! You're coming here, too? All the way from PCB?

Yep. That's the one I'm signed on with. I visited the campus, talked with instructors, students and other staff. Toured the facility and checked out the equipment. They made it too easy for me to decide. They even did all of my VA paperwork and filed it for me.

It's roughly a 4 hour drive, mostly interstate so not too bad at all. Right now my plans are to stay at NAS Jax Sunday through Friday and come home on the weekends as long as there is no instruction scheduled.

There's a private school (TDI) much closer, in Milton, but I felt the program at Florida Tech was way superior so to me the drive is worth it.

Glad to have met someone on Trucking Truth from my area (well, sort of).

You graduated already, yes? I start May 6th.

Gotten any good offers yet?

Graduated Apr. 5, and I have four hot irons in the fire, currently. I'm actually having difficulty selecting, which is a welcome switch!

10. Your load includes 20 pounds of division 2.3 gas and .1001 pounds of flammable gas. What placard do you need?

A. Flammable B. Explosive C. Poison

The answer given is B, Explosive. How does this combination of class 2 materials become a class 1 material? And, a division 2.3 gas is poisonous, requiring a placard in any amount. But, explosive??

I've literally spent hours studying the training guide, and I'm just not finding why this is the answer. Any help from anyone, so that I can move on, would be greatly appreciated!

None of these answers are correct. Class 2.3 is a Table 1 commodity and therefore any amount must be placarded. Additionally, you cannot use a Dangerous placard for a Table 1.

Since the flammable gas is Table 2, and the quantity shipped is 1,001 lbs, you must placard for that too. Or remove one pound. :-)

The only correct answer is the Poison Gas placard (172.540) and the Flammable Gas placard (172.532).

The Poison Gas placard is the skull and crossbones with the number 2 and "Inhalation Hazard" text.

There is no allowable substitution for the scenario given. Furthermore, displaying an explosive placard when not transporting explosives would be a violation of prohibited placarding, commonly referred to as "false advertising."

I hope that clears it up.

I need to make a slight correction. If the 2.3 is a hazard zone A (#1 in column 7 of the Hazmat table) this would not be allowed to be transported together per the segregation table in 177.848. If it were hazard zone B (#2 in column 7), it can only be transported on the same vehicle if segregated in a certain manner.

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
