Department of Transportation Hosts HAZMAT Training at West Oakland Neighborhood Career Center

A classroom full of students participated in a two-day HAZMAT training with the Department of Transportation at PIC’s West Oakland Neighborhood Career Center August 8-9, 2016. During this training opportunity, students learned transportation regulations, vehicle safety, packaging rules and procedures, and emergency response.

The training equipped students with valuable skills that they can apply in various job positions such as a driver, packager, dock worker, warehousing and construction. Students that successfully completed the two-day training also received a Department of Transportation Card.

Congratulations to all the students!
