Dangerous Goods By Air:
Acceptance – Initial course covering all classes
This course helps people interpret and apply the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR), which are pertinent for both domestic and international air transportation. Full compliance with the Regulations, and an understanding of the concepts behind them, will ensure the safety of all who travel by air and protect shippers and their agents from unknowingly committing unlawful acts regarding dangerous goods.

The course examines all aspects of the IATA DGR and provides a systematic approach to identifying and preparing hazardous shipments for air transport. There are plenty of follow-up exercises to reinforce the knowledge acquired. You’re welcome to bring along safety data sheets (SDS) if you wish to ask specific questions.
