Dangerous Goods by Air (IATA) Course Wed 10 May 2017   09:30 Finished

This is a CAA approved 3-day training course and open book examination, covering the requirements of the IATA Dangerous Goods by Air Regulations. Someone possessing this qualification will be an asset to their department as carriers ask for more assurances about the packaging and labelling of cargoes.

Note that each participant will need the use of an up to date IATA manual (changes annually) for this course. A few copies are usually available on loan so if you would like to borrow one please let us know. Other participants will have to purchase or borrow a manual independently.

There will be a 0930 start on the first day but subsequent start, finish and break times will be a matter of negotiation with the trainer.

There is unlikely to be another full IATA course organised centrally until 2019.

This briefing is essential for those responsible for reporting accidents and incidents in their departments, such as safety officers, administrators, or first aiders. The reporting process and the updated reporting form will be explained. Refreshments will be provided.
