During the week of July 12–17, 2009, nineteen District Lodge 141 members from across the United Airlines system completed a 40 hour Dangerous Goods Train-the-Trainer program designed specifically for United Airlines and Hazardous Materials Workers in the Airline Industry. The training was held at the William W. Winpisinger Education and Technology Center in Hollywood, Maryland. The Associate Instructors may now deliver Dangerous Goods and Hazardous Material Awareness classes to workers at selected locations within the United Airlines system. The classes were developed by IAM CREST to enhance the current initial and recurrent training provided by United Airlines for workers who handle dangerous goods. The training is funded by a grant from the Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA). The awareness training stresses the importance of identifying dangerous goods, the associated hazards, and proper handling procedures at United Airlines.
