* Taking the GENERAL AWARENESS PACKAGING SPECIALIST TRAINING course alone, does not fully certify one as a hazmat packaging specialist/shipper. The other three classes (taken in addition to the GA course) do satisfy the requirements to certify the student as a hazmat packaging specialist/shipper for the respective mode of transport upon successful completion.
