Regulatory Training

WMG’s Regulatory Training Services satisfy the training requirements established in IE Bulletin 79-19 and 49 CFR 172, Subpart H.

Compliant Course Material

WMG training courses satisfy the regulatory training requirements listed below. Courses are comprehensive, structured and easily customized to include client specific requirements.

  • NRC Bulletin 79-19
  • 49 CFR 172.704 for HAZMAT Employees
  • IATA Dangerous Good Regulations

Our courses also address the “general awareness” and “function specific” requirements as established in 49 CFR Part 172.704.

Exams and Certifications

Course completion and certification is accomplished by obtaining a passing score on the written exam. Each successful participant receives a certificate stating their training meets the requirements of 49 CFR 172, Subpart H, NRC IE Notice 79-19, and where applicable, WMG’s computer software.

WMG courses satisfy all regulatory training requirements. They are comprehensive and delivered by highly experienced shippers. Of significant importance is our flexibility to customize course content by integrating the client’s specific requirements. A service consideration of this type is performed for our clients routinely.

Certain WMG courses are approved by the American Academy of Health Physics (AAHP) for Continuing Education Credits (CEC).

WMG has been training industry technicians and professionals for over 30 years. Each course is delivered to the student by seasoned and highly experienced shippers. Our courses, both standard and customized, are comprehensive, structured and meet the training requirements established by regulatory authority.

The Problem

In 1979, the NRC became concerned with what they referred to as “…serious and repeated disregard for rules governing the shipments of low-level radioactive wastes…” They responded by issuing IE Bulletin 79- 19 and requiring licensees to:

Provide training and periodic retraining in the DOT and NRC regulatory requirements, the waste burial license requirements, and in [the Site’s] operating procedures for all personnel involved in the transfer, packaging and transport of radioactive materials.

In addition to 79-19, 49 CFR Part 172 Subpart H has clearly established training/periodic retraining cycles as being once every three years for DOT/NRC and every two years for IATA.

The Solution

WMG offers a series of structured regulatory training courses, prepared and delivered by experienced personnel. Our courses completely satisfy the regulatory training requirements established by NRC IE Bulletin 79-19 and 49 CFR Part 172, Subpart H. Many of our courses are accredited to offer Continuing Education Credits (CEC). Of significant importance is WMG’s ability to customize its curriculums in order to address a client’s particular training requirement, need and/or situation. This includes adding such features as integrating the client’s existing procedures into the course program. Our courses can be taught at the client’s facility, or at regional locations.

Customized Courses

Of significant importance is WMG’s flexibility to customize our courses to integrate client-specific requirements. These kinds of course adjustments and customizations are routinely requested and easily accommodated.
