Blocking and Bracing course?

​I am trying to find out if their are any courses out there that cover blocking and bracing of ammunition shipments.  While I was in the Army the B&B crew was also the R&U, when I worked at SDDC ports it was union carpenter labor, and now I have a different crew, but they have no formal training. 

The DTR says all personnel involved in the handling, repackagiing, and loading operations have to be properly trained and recommends (https://training.dla.mil/HAZMAT) but I can never get that link to work.

I have been to AMMO-62 and have taken AMMO-51, and done the  Defense Basic Preservation and Packing (online) from DAC.....none of these cover blocking and bracing.  Any suggestions where I can look for this training?  Is there really a formal requirement..or just suggestions and recommendations?

 

Thanx,

Ted
