Online Training Certification Course Shipping Explosives by Air
from the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.
This online training course covers the specific requirements for handling and transporting IATA HAZMAT Class 1 dangerous goods. Class 1 items include explosive substances and articles. These items are grouped into six subdivisions based on their explosive characteristics and the type of hazards they present.
The handling and transport of Class 1 items is tightly regulated, and all involved personnel must undergo IATA explosives training. This safety training covers how to use the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations, shipper and operator responsibilities, and the proper methods to safely identify, document, package, mark, label, handle, and load individual classes of dangerous goods.
What are the governing regulations? Shipping explosives by air is governed by the IATA Class 1 Dangerous Goods Regulations. This online certification course satisfies all air carrier requirements for proof of IATA Class 1 training, including FedEx and UPS.
Who must take this training? Safety training must be provided or verified for all personnel as identified in Table 1.5 A of the IATA DGR. 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: 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.
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.
