RCRA/DOT Training hosted by Liquid Waste Removal (LWR)

If you manage and ship hazardous waste, you must meet training requirements for both the U.S. EPA’s hazardous waste management rules and the U.S. DOT’s rules for packaging, labeling, loading, and documenting shipments of hazardous materials. 

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requires training for personnel involved with hazardous waste management. This training session meets the regulatory requirements for both initial and annual refresher training and includes the following topics:

  • Overview of Hazardous Waste Regulations
  • Hazardous Waste Determinations
  • Generator Classification
  • Hazardous Waste Management Standards for Containers and Tanks
  • Satellite Accumulation Standards
  • Personnel Training
  • Land Disposal Restrictions
  • Manifesting
  • Used Oil and Universal Waste
  • Updates on New Rules, Including the Generator Improvement Rule
  • Common Violations and How to Avoid Them
  • Contingency Plans and Emergency Procedures


This DOT training and testing complies with requirements applicable to hazardous waste shippers. This training is geared to those who complete and sign hazardous waste manifests to ship waste by highway. Training is required every 3 years. Topics to be covered include:

  • DOT Hazardous Material Awareness
  • Classifications of Hazardous Materials
  • Hazardous Materials Table
  • Shipping Papers
  • Packaging
  • Marking, Labeling, and Placarding
  • Emergency Response Information
  • Transportation Security
