UK CAA Approved Dangerous Goods Transportation Compliance by Air (ICAO/IATA)
Length: 2.5 Days
Prerequisite: None

Intended audience: This course provides training for dangerous good employees responsible for preparing, offering for transportation, or transporting dangerous goods by aircraft. This program has been reviewed and approved by the United Kingdom (UK) Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). The program focuses on the safe carriage of dangerous goods in accordance with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Technical Instructions and use of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations. The course satisfies the training requirements for all persons concerned in the transport of dangerous goods within the scope of the international transport regulations, who are engaged in employee functions affecting safety in the offering of dangerous goods for air transport.

Course Description: Transport of dangerous goods by air must be in compliance with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Technical Instructions. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) have incorporated the requirements of ICAO Technical Instructions as well as additional restrictions or requirements of States and Operators, and  are used when preparing dangerous goods for transport by aircraft.

European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) Training
Length: 1 Day
Prerequisite: None

Intended audience: This course provides training for dangerous goods employees on the requirements governing the carriage of dangerous goods appropriate to their responsibilities and duties through instruction on the use of the European Agreement Concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR). The course satisfies the training requirements for employees involved in the carriage of dangerous goods in accordance with the ADR 1.3.2 who are engaged in functions affecting safety and security in the offering of dangerous goods and transport by road.

Course Description: Regulatory bodies have cited human error as the single most common cause of incidents involving releases of dangerous goods and identified the lack of training as the root cause. To alleviate the problem, the International Maritime Organization, the European Union, the U.S. DOT and other regulatory bodies require systematic training for all employees whose duties concern the carriage of dangerous goods before assuming responsibilities to perform dangerous goods functions.

Global incidents involving terrorism have indicated that dangerous goods in transportation, that may fall into the wrong hands, could be used as weapons of mass destruction. Regulatory codes now include requirements that employees be trained in the aspects of security awareness and must know their individual responsibilities within applicable written security plans implemented by their employer.

Course Description:
Regulatory Bodies have cited human error and lack of training as the single most contributory element associated with accidents and incidents which occur during the course of transportation. Lack of awareness and understanding of the hazards associated with accidental releases of such materials may contribute to the seriousness of such incidents and often result in injuries to employees handling these materials and significant damage to property and/or the environment. In order to prevent the occurrence of such incidents and to alleviate the results, the International Maritime Organization, the European Union, the US DOT and other regulatory bodies require that all hazmat employees receive training which will make them familiar with the safety and security hazards associated with regulated hazardous materials in transportation. This course will provide an awareness of the associated hazards and security considerations as well as regulations which apply to offering or transporting hazardous materials. In order to provide ongoing qualification, employers must train the employee within 90 days of hiring or changing of their job responsibilities and at least every three (3) years thereafter.The Hazardous Materials Regulations in 49 CFR have been in a state of constant change during recent years as the US regulations are being brought into alignment with the United Nations recommendations for international uniformity. Changes include  standards for performance oriented packaging, amended definitions, classification and division of hazards, labels, markings, placards, required entries on shipping documents, and even changes to the entries in the Hazardous Materials Table in §172.101.  Domestic shipments of certain materials, entirely within the US boundaries, may be subject to a different set of regulations than shipments of the same materials intended for international transportation, and may even be identified by alternate proper shipping names.  Even those individuals who are currently very knowledgeable in the regulations are apt to have difficulty in interpreting the tables and properly preparing or inspecting shipments. Changes in the existing regulations and new initiatives brought about by recent rulemakings, require companies develop a systematic training cycle for new and current employees.

Course Description:
Domestic shipments of certain materials, intended for surface transportation entirely within the boundaries of the US, are sometimes subject to different regulations than shipments of the same materials intended for international or intermodal transportation, and may even be identified by alternate proper shipping names and descriptions.Title 49 CFR, Part 171, §171.22 authorizes transportation by aircraft, and by motor vehicle prior to or following transportation by aircraft, if the hazardous materials are in compliance with the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Technical Instructions. The International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations have incorporated the ICAO Technical Instructions with additional restrictions, and thus are used when shipping hazardous materials by aircraft. Title 49 CFR, §171.23 specifies certain conditions and limitations that must be considered when transporting these substances by aircraft in the U.S. The US DOT has cited human error as the single most common cause of incidents involving releases of hazardous materials and has cited the lack of training as the root of the problem.To alleviate the problem, DOT now requires systematic training for all employees who meet the regulatory definition of a “hazmat employee” and places the responsibility for training the employee on the “hazmat employer.” Employees engaged in offering for transportation or transporting dangerous goods by air may, as an alternative or supplement, be trained to meet the requirements of the ICAO Technical Instructions. This course is designed to meet the regulatory training standards set out in 49 CFR, Part 172, Subpart H, for all hazmat employees engaged in offering hazardous materials for intermodal transportation. The course described will focus on the regulations applicable to the classification, packaging, marking, labeling, and documentation requirements for offering dangerous goods for transportation by air.

Course Description:
Harmonization of the US Regulations on transporting hazardous materials with the United Nations Committee of Experts (UN COE) Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods, has resulted in numerous comprehensive rulemakings which have significantly changed the requirements within Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations. These amendments and all subsequent corrections and additions, can significantly impact operational activities of shippers, carriers, and packaging manufacturers.Domestic shipments of certain materials, intended for surface transportation entirely within the boundaries of the US, are sometimes subject to different regulations than shipments of the same materials intended for international or intermodal transportation, and may even be identified by alternate proper shipping names and descriptions.Title 49 CFR authorizes transportation by water vessel, and by motor vehicle prior to or following transportation by vessel, if the hazardous materials are in compliance with the requirements of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code. However 49 CFR also specifies certain conditions and limitations that apply to those shipments when transported domestically in intermodal carriage.Regulatory bodies have cited human error as the single most common cause of incidents involving releases of hazardous materials and have cited the lack of training as the root of the problem. To alleviate the problem, the International Maritime Organization, the European Union, the US DOT and other regulatory bodies require systematic training for all employees who meet the regulatory definition of a “hazmat employee” and places the responsibility for training the employee on the “hazmat employer.” Employees engaged in offering for transportation or transporting dangerous goods by air or water may, as an alternative, be trained to meet the requirements of the ICAO Technical Instructions or the IMDG Code. This course is designed to meet the regulatory training standards set out in 49 CFR, Part 172, Subpart H, for all hazmat employees engaged in offering hazardous materials for intermodal transportation.Global incidents involving terrorism have indicated that hazardous materials in transportation that may fall into the wrong hands could be used as weapons of mass destruction. Regulatory codes of the US and international modal agencies now include requirements that these hazmat employees must also be trained in the aspects of security awareness and must know their individual responsibilities within the mandated written security plans implemented by their employer.
