During the week of November 1-5, 2010, five members from IAM District Lodge 141 at Hawaiian Airlines – Operations, completed the Hazardous Material Awareness Training Train-the-Trainer Course at Local Lodge 1979 located in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The Train-The-Trainer course was developed by IAM CREST specifically to enhance the required dangerous goods training provided by Hawaiian Airlines. After successfully completing the course these IAM CREST DOT Associate Instructors will be authorized to deliver Awareness Training to workers who handle dangerous goods by air.
