CAA (IATA) Dangerous Goods training
Air freight accounts for only 0.5 per cent of the UK's international goods movements by weight, but 25 per cent by value. Dangerous Goods training is a mandatory requirement for anyone involved in the transport of dangerous goods by air (shippers, packers, freight forwarders, cargo handlers, airline personnel etc). You can read more about dangerous goods training on the CAA website.
The actual course is based on the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. All our courses are fully approved in the UK by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), are suitable for all categories of staff, and cover all classes of goods except for the detailed requirements for radioactive materials.
The course is very interactive, and concludes with the completion of the mandatory written, open-book, examination. Certification is valid for two years, after which time the trainee may attend a revalidation course to maintain their entitlement (though, unless the candidate has remained very familiar with the Regulations, we strongly recommend attending a full initial course again).
At the end of the course, candidates will be familiar with the Regulations and be confidently able to apply them with regards to the classification, packaging, labelling, documentation and, if appropriate, the handling, stowage and segregation of Dangerous Goods.
If you only ship infectious substances or diagnostic specimens etc, you can de a shorter restricted course specifically for these materials. Full details can be found HERE.
Open courses are offered at our fully-equipped Southampton training centre (and other venues throughout the country as this service builds), or can be presented nationwide on our customers’ premises.
On all courses, we supply copies of the latest Regulations and calculators for the trainees to use, and provide free parking and free refreshments during breaks for courses held in Southampton (there is also a good café that students are welcome to use).
