  • Transporting Lithium Batteries provides information for shippers about safety precautions, packaging and labeling requirements, and documents required for compliance with applicable U.S. and international regulations.

All three training courses are available immediately from the PRO-TREAD library.  The lessons can be taken from any connected device including iOS and Android.
