Information Collection Requirement TSA’s Highway & Motor Carrier Division will be producing a voluntary security-related training course for the hazmat motor carrier and shipper industry. Participants will be able to choose to attend instructor-led training sessions that TSA will conduct at multiple sites in the United States, and TSA will advise the industry of the availability of the training through trade associations, conferences, and stakeholder meetings. Hazmat motor carriers and shippers that are registered with the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) will automatically receive the training via CD–ROM and DVD. Companies may also complete the training on-line at the TSA public Web site, http://www.tsa.gov. The Web site training is available to the public and does not require a log-in or password. After completion of the training program, participants will have the option to complete a course evaluation form to comment on the effectiveness of the training program. The participants who choose to complete the training evaluation form will submit the form via e-mail to a secure Web surveyor tool that is managed by TSA. Participants who attend the classroom training sessions will also be asked to complete an evaluation form on-site, which will later be entered into the Web surveyor tool by TSA personnel. TSA will use this data to measure the program’s effectiveness at achieving its goal of heightened security awareness levels throughout the hazmat motor carrier and shipper industry. Hazmat motor carriers and shippers that are registered with the DOT are eligible to receive the training; there are approximately seventy-five thousand (75,000) shippers registered. Currently, DOT requires awareness and in-depth security training for hazmat employees of persons required to have a security plan in accordance with subpart I of 49 CFR part 172 concerning the security plan and its implementation.
