This one-day training course has been developed to address the general awareness training requirements as specified in Chapter 1.3 of the ADR and IMDG transport regulations for personnel involved in the carriage of dangerous goods who:

  1.     Pack dangerous goods
  2.     Mark label or placard dangerous goods
  3.     Load/unload cargo transport units
  4.     Prepare transport documents

Although not addressing the specific training requirements for air transport, the course also highlights some of differences associated with the air mode.
