IATA DGR Flight Crew & Load Planners

General Familiarization & Function Specific

Online Training Certification Course

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

Both personnel who operate an aircraft while in flight and the handling staff who load and unload the aircraft must have a comprehensive understanding of the regulations, safe handling methods, and loading and unloading procedures for carrying hazardous goods. This online training course presents function-specific topics for IATA flight crews and airline load planners. Course topics cover the basic concepts and proper methods to safely identify, mark, label, store, handle, and load each class of dangerous goods. This ensures planners and flight crews are able to identify dangerous goods and their associated hazards--and understand the procedures to follow should they encounter an undeclared dangerous good or hazard-related emergency.

This course is for:
According to IATA DGR Section, personnel identified in the categories specified in Tables 1.5 A or 1.5 B must take part in (or provide verification of) safety training prior to performing any duties specified in Tables 1.5 A or 1.5 B. This includes IATA Category 10 - flight crew members, aircraft load planners, flight dispatchers, and flight operations officers.
