Multimodal: Dangerous Goods by Air, Road and Sea

AIR (IATA) – Legislation requires that all staff involved in the packing, documentation or handling of dangerous goods by air complete a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved training course. This requirement is met by attending a Dangerous Goods by Air Certificate course. Your certificate must then be revalidated at intervals of no longer than 2 years by completing a refresher course and successfully passing the CAA exam. 

SEA (IMDG) – The regulations require that all shore based staff involved with the transport of dangerous by sea require training. This includes those who prepare documentation, classify, pack, mark, label and prepare shipments of dangerous goods. 

ROAD (ADR) – Training is required for all staff who may classify, pack, mark, or label dangerous goods which will be consigned by road.
