Case Study: A passenger in Australia was transferring planes when he was stopped by police. The police drug detection dog sniffed out the passenger's baggage. When the passenger was asked what was in his bag, he admitted to carrying fireworks. All types of fireworks are prohibited on passenger aircraft. The incident was handed over to the appropriate authority, and the man was fined $5,000.

    Summary
    Exam

It will take a MINIMUM of 3 hours to complete this online course. The student may log on and off as needed. A bookmark will be set so when they log back in they will return to where they left off.

We have no restrictions on how long a person takes to complete a course. Likewise, if you are purchasing for others, we have no time limit on assigning courses. So you can purchase a larger quantity than you currently need and take advantage of volume discounts.

To remain IATA certified, retraining must take place within 24 months of the previous training. Some relevant authorities define a shorter period for recertification, which would take precedence over the IATA DGR requirements.

If you do not have a copy, you will need to purchase the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) Manual both for reference purposes in your day to day shipping operations, and while taking this course.

You can access the "IATA DGR 61st Edition Significant Changes" document from our "Resources" section.
