Product Details


Anyone whose position involves handling hazardous materials, dangerous goods which may have a direct or indirect impact in the transportation of such, is required by federal and international regulations to undergo training. While this is true for all hazmat employees involved in any mode of transportation, training in the regulations of international and domestic air transport is vital. The regulations for shipping dangerous goods by aircraft are particularly stringent, as a hazardous materials incident occurring in the air can potentially develop into a far more serious incident than one being transported by ground or vessel.

In an effort to prevent incidents from taking place, hazmat employees involved in the air transport process must comply with strict regulations for the classification, identification, packing, marking and labeling, documentation, placarding, and segregation of hazardous materials. They must also know which types of dangerous goods are outright forbidden from being transported on an aircraft or only allowed under certain conditions and in certain amounts. International Air Training for shipping hazardous materials shows how to achieve all of this in a manner that complies with regulations and prevents incidents from occurring, as well as emergency response information.

Hazmat University’s International Air Training - Initial provides required initial training to participants involved with shipping dangerous goods by air. Dangerous Goods by Air training is based on the requirements outlined in Title 49, Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR), International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) and the International Civil Aviation Organization’s (ICAO) Technical Instructions. Employees who have undergone initial training in the past are required by law to undergo recurrent training at least once every two years in accordance with the international regulations and every three years according to 49 CFR, and Hazmat University provides International Air Training - Recurrent to comply with these requirements.

UPDATED FOR 2018 (IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations 59th Edition)
