|Most dangerous goods shipped
by air are not shipped solely under the Department of
Transportation’s Hazardous Materials Regulations in 49 CFR.
When shipping by air (including transport to and from the
airport), hazardous materials, or dangerous goods, must
comply with both DOT and ICAO (IATA) Regulations, which are
similar but not the same. With Transportation Skills
Programs’ long history of providing DOT Hazmat Training for
over thirty years, we are proud to announce the NEW 1-Day
Biennial Update for Shipping Dangerous Goods under IATA.
Who Should Attend?
Anyone who classifies, packages, marks, or labels
dangerous goods shipments or completes and/or signs
dangerous goods shipping papers for shipment (domestically
or internationally) in the air mode under the IATA and DOT
regulations, including freight forwarders. Because of the
complex nature of the hazardous materials and dangerous
goods transportation regulations, this seminar has been
developed for individuals who already have experience with
DOT and/or IATA regulations – those who have been trained,
tested and certified in the past 2 years. Attendees should
have a basic knowledge of classification; documentation
(shipping papers); packaging; labeling and marking.
Why Should I Attend This Seminar?
It is almost impossible to ship by air using solely one
set of regulations. Air shippers need to utilize both DOT
and IATA regulations. This course is designed to help
attendees get comfortable with using the IATA regulations
and understand their responsibilities within the
regulations. Transportation Skills Programs, Inc. has been
providing DOT, EPA and OSHA training for over 30 years. With
the increase in air shipments and demand for IATA dangerous
goods training, it is a natural extension of our expertise
in hazmat shipping. We can now bring our long experience and
support in the hazmat & waste industries to air shipment
training as well.
