Safe and Compliant Transportation of Excepted Lithium Batteries by Ground (49 CFR) and Air (ICAO/IATA) 2024 (Course)

Safe and Compliant Transportation of Excepted Lithium Batteries by Ground (49 CFR) and Air (ICAO/IATA) 2024 (Course)
Safe and Compliant Transportation of Excepted Lithium Batteries by Ground and Air is intended for the training of hazmat employees responsible for the handling, shipping, or transportation of excepted lithium batteries by ground (road or rail) and air, using 49 CFR and the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR). It explains the various types of lithium battery technologies in use today and has been designed to meet the adequate instruction and function-specific training requirements of the regulations for excepted lithium batteries. This training can be used for both initial and recurrent training.

Lithium battery types covered in this course include:

Lithium Ion Cells & Batteries
  • Small (all modes) – Not to exceed 20 Wh/cell or 100 Wh/battery
  • Medium (ground only) – Not to exceed 60 Wh/cell or 300 Wh/battery
Lithium Metal Cells & Batteries
  • Small (all modes) – Not to exceed 1 g lithium/cell or 2 g lithium/battery
  • Medium (ground only) – Not to exceed 5 g lithium/cell or 25 g lithium/battery
The Lithium Battery Shipping Training (49 CFR, ICAO/IATA) Course meets the regulatory training standards set out in 49 CFR, Part 172, Subpart H, and the IATA DGR, Section 1.6 for all employees involved in the safe transportation of excepted lithium batteries by ground and air and includes all recent amendments and interpretations.

Learning Objective(s):
  • Navigating the hazmat table and § 173.185 of 49 CFR, as well as the IATA List of Dangerous Goods and packing instructions 965 to 970, to determine the classification/identification, packaging and marking requirements for safe the transportation of excepted lithium batteries by ground and air.
Target Audience:
  • Shippers, carriers and freight forwarders (i.e. dangerous goods employees and their supervisors) who handle, prepare shipments, transport or offer excepted lithium batteries for ground or air transport to, from or within the US. 
Modules / Topics:
  • Classification of lithium batteries
  • Lithium battery test summary requirements
  • Exceptions to the regulations (packaging & marking requirements)
  • Domestic shipment of excepted lithium batteries in the US
  • International shipment of excepted lithium batteries by air (ICAO/IATA)
  • Most recent regulatory changes
Required Regulatory Texts & References 
  • None
Recommended Resources:
Pr e-requisites:
  • General Awareness & Security Awareness HazMat Transportation Training (2023) – 49 CFR
Course Features:
  • Run Time: 1 hr
  • Language: English
  • Includes final assessment to validate student’s understanding of material
  • Training certificate will be issued upon successful completion of course. Currie Associates training course certificates do not meet the requirements for a CNS endorsement application and will not reflect IATA accreditation.
