IATA DGR Refresher

IATA DGR Refresher Training

Online Training Certification Course Shipping Dangerous Goods by Air

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

This online refresher course presents a review of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. It covers basic concepts, such as how to use IATA regulations, shipper and operator responsibilities, and the proper methods to safely identify, document, package, mark, label, handle, and load individual classes of dangerous goods. It also presents statistics and case studies to emphasize the need for dangerous goods regulations for air transport.

Shipping hazardous materials by air can pose serious risks if the materials are not classified, packed, labeled, or handled correctly. Resources are limited in the event of an inflight accident or incident, so IATA certification is an important component of an organization's overall safety training program.

To remain IATA certified, personnel involved in shipping hazmat by air must complete IATA refresher training every 24 months. This online training refresher course covers important topics, such as how to use IATA regulations, shipper and operator responsibilities, and the proper methods to safely identify, document, package, mark, label, handle, and load individual classes of dangerous goods.

Other Frequently Asked Questions

Case Study: A shipper failed to declare a wet cell battery as dangerous goods. The shipper had emptied the acid out of the battery but did not protect the terminals before packing the battery with brake cables. During transit, the brake cable short circuited the terminals, causing heat generation. The package burst into flames when it was unloaded from the aircraft. Investigators suspect that the lack of oxygen in the cargo hold, caused by a large quantity of dry ice, ensured that the package only smoldered during flight.
