NTTC is continuing its partnership with the U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), co-sponsoring workshops designed to help cargo tank repair technicians, testers and inspectors comply with the regulations – whether as a bulk motor carrier or for a commercial repair facility.

The workshops are conducted by experienced U.S. DOT / Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration field agents who are active in hazardous material and cargo tank training and enforcement - with special training in the details of cargo tank regulatory requirements.  They use their experience in conducting facility audits to introduce "real world" issues into the workshops.

Topics to be covered in the workshop include:

  • Overview of 49 CFR Part 180
  • Special test/inspection conditions
  • External visual inspections
  • Internal visual inspections
  • Pressure tests
  •  Leakage tests
  • Thickness tests
  • Lining inspections
  • DOT Interpretations
  • Compliance dates/tank markings
  • Record keeping requirements
  • Cargo tank repair and retrofitting
  • Compliance and enforcement issues
  • Registration procedures for test/inspection facilities
  • History/Background of 49 CFR Parts 107 & 180 (HM-183 and HM-213)
  • Qualifications of Registered Inspectors, Design Certifying Engineers & Authorized Inspectors

These two-day workshops run from approximately 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.  Attendees will receive a 200 page workbook, an NTTC Bulk Hazmat Compliance Guide (formerly known as the NTTC Hazardous Materials Regulations book) and meals (breakfast and lunch) both days. Certificates of attendance will be issued to those attending both days.
