Air transport is an extremely fast method of transport, but also means that a number of strict transport requirements must be met. The transport of hazardous substances by air is subject to even more regulations, since the vulnerability of air transport is only increasing.
In order to minimise the risk to this mode of transport, a Decree on the Transport of Hazardous Substances by Air was introduced in 2003 and a number of regulations have been included to obtain accreditation in the areas of offering, reporting incidents and training. These regulations include all measures which ensure that everyone in the transport chain is sufficiently qualified. Their task is to offer those dangerous goods to air carriers for transport by air.
The course is intended for all employees who are responsible for the packaging, presentation and administrative preparation for shipping dangerous goods by air.
Upon completion of the course, the student must be able to apply the regulations correctly in theory and to check compliance with the regulations.
The goods, which are offered for transport by air, will have to comply with all packing requirements and have to be provided with the correct transport documents. If this is not the case, it means that you will not be able to achieve your desired shipping speed, as the cargo will be refused. An alternative is to have your goods packed locally, by a recognized company, against high rates and provided with the correct documents.
The training "IATA DANGEROUS GOODS REGULATIONS" that you can follow at AGTL teaches you, in accordance with the IATA DGR manual, to take the right measures to have your shipment delivered at the right time and place at the lowest cost. AGTL is an examination and training institute, recognized by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment, which uses questions and cases to familiarize students with the rules of transporting dangerous goods by air.
