This online course covers Class 7 Radiation Hazmat Hazardous Materials.  It is a comprehensive course that covers all topics relative to classifying, packaging, shipping, transporting, receiving, storing, and securing radioactive materials to DOT, NRC, and IATA criteria.

It meets the criteria in DOT as specified by 49 CFR 172 Subpart H and the NRC per 10 CFR 71.5 and 10 CFR 20.1906.  The course addresses shipping and transfer of normal and special form radioactive materials by ground, vessel, train, and air as well as the transfer of low-level radioactive waste.

The course covers 12 chapters, three quizzes, and one final exam.  A passing grade of 80% will automatically issue a certificate of completion.  Each chapter utilizes state-of-the-art technologies to deliver the lesson material in a highly professional manner.  Students are sequentially stepped through the course enabling them to build their knowledge logically and understandably.  Any chapter can be reviewed as often as needed to master the subject material.

To enhance learning, Radiation Solutions has developed a Class 7 Radioactives Packaging & Shipping Guide in the form of an Excel file that students can download onto their digital device.  This Guide logically assists in all the decisions needed in making a radioactive shipment and recording them.

It also includes links to 14 other tabs within the Excel file that contain all the various regulatory look-up tables and other complex regulatory information required so they can quickly and conveniently find the exact information required when working on the test problems.

The course subscription entitles the registered student access to these materials for one full year.  Students can complete this course in as little as 5 hours.  Those new to this subject matter can expect to take longer.  The course is designed to facilitate stopping and returning to the same point so they can take as much time as needed.  All quizzes and the final exam must be completed once started.

Students should already have a fundamental understanding of radioactivity before taking this course.  While a very high-level quick review of radiation and radiation units is included, it is recommended that they take our affordable eLearn Fundamentals of Radiation Safety course first if they already do not have this background.


Students can log in to this course and materials for one full year from the date of purchase.


Once you pass the final exam, you will be able to download a Radiation Solutions pdf certificate that includes the course name, applicable regulations, your name, date of completion, and signature by the authorized trainer.


This self-paced, online eLearn Course fulfills regulatory criteria for the initial training as well as recurrent training every 3 years for ground shipping or every two years for air shipments.


This eLearn course is typically finished in 4-5 hours so it can be completed in as little as one day.
