IATA DGR Class 3 Flammable Liquids

Shipping Flammable Liquids and Liquid Desensitized Explosives by Air

Online Training Certification Course

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

IATA Class 3 training is critically important for ensuring the proper handling of these dangerous goods. Shippers and operators must be IATA certified and trained in the proper methods to safely identify, document, package, mark, label, handle, and load individual classes of dangerous goods.

Shipping flammable liquids by air can have catastrophic consequences if these dangerous materials are not packaged and handled properly. IATA HAZMAT Class 3 substances present fire and explosion hazards, as well as toxic effects from inhalation or contact with skin. This online training course takes a step-by-step approach to identifying the specific requirements for proper handling and transportation of flammable liquids and liquid desensitized explosives.

This course is for:
Safety training is required for all personnel who can impact the safe transport of hazardous materials. This includes airline cargo acceptance staff, packers and freight forwarders, shippers, cargo training and development specialists, regulatory compliance specialists, ground handling and goods control staff involved in the cargo chain, security screeners, and operations and station managers.

Case Study: Police were sent to investigate an unclaimed bag left on a baggage carousel in an international airport. An inspection of the bag revealed a fire extinguisher, a blue pullover, and some sandwiches. After tracing the bag, the owner claimed to have no knowledge of the contents. After further investigation, it was discovered that the passenger had mistakenly taken a bag that was in the taxi's trunk and checked the additional bag. Although nothing dangerous happened, it shows how easy baggage with dangerous goods can accidentally be loaded onto an aircraft.
