An Online IATA Training Course for Companies and Individuals

Our four-hour dangerous goods shipping course covers the fundamentals of shipping dangerous goods by air according to International Air Transport Association (IATA) regulations. This course is self-paced, so you can come and go as you need to over a period of 60 days. This course serves as both initial and recurrent training. It will include any changes to the regulations, using the 58th Edition (2018) of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR).

Upon completion of this course, you will immediately receive your hazardous material shipping certification, which will remain active for two years. This certification gives you the ability to ship by air internationally via FedEx, UPS and other carriers. Whether you plan on shipping hazardous materials or dangerous goods domestically or internally, our in-depth IATA training can help you get your certification quickly.

Who Requires IATA Training?

The US DOT requires training for all Hazmat employees in the United States, regardless of the rules you are following to prepare hazardous materials for transportation. The US DOT allows shippers to follow the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations if part or all of the shipment is shipped by air. IATA training is required for all persons who transport dangerous goods according to IATA DGR 1.5.

International Air Transport Association regulations require that aircraft operator employees and anyone involved in shipping hazardous materials by air receive an IATA Hazmat shipping certification before they can transport dangerous goods by airplane. As a result, anyone involved in the air transport of dangerous goods — including shippers, ground service providers, freight forwarders and airline workers — must receive some dangerous goods shipping training. Training is especially important because breaking IATA requirements may result in heavy fines and citations for the carrier involved.

Most airlines will require parties to comply with IATA regulations before they accept any shipment of dangerous goods. Therefore, if you or your company ships hazardous materials by air for any reason, domestically or internationally, you may need an IATA Hazmat shipping certification.

  • Do you ship or package hazardous materials (or dangerous goods) for international transport by air?
  • Have you already undergone basic Department of Transportation (DOT) Hazmat shipping training that covers domestic requirements?

Are you seeking an IATA DGR training online? If so, Hazmat School’s online IATA course could give you the skills and certification you need.

What Industries Need Dangerous Goods Shipping Training?

This online course is designed to meet DGR 1.5 requirements for companies in air transport, shipping and Hazmat industries.

How Often Do I Need to Renew My IATA Dangerous Goods Training?

IATA training is required every two years for workers who wish to maintain their certification. If you’re going to ship dangerous goods as part of your profession now or in the future, you’ll need to keep your certification current through renewal training. Our online course can serve as a first-time certification course or as a refresher course.

iata courseWho Writes the IATA Dangerous Goods Training?

The DGR 1.5 regulations this training is based on come from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) — an international group of airlines organized for the safety, reliability and security of economical air travel. The IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations incorporate all of the Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) technical instructions into the IATA manual and add requirements that are more restrictive. Most air carriers will not accept dangerous goods shipments that do not meet these additional restrictions, so shippers must comply with the IATA rules.


How Does This IATA Online Training Course Work?

Our online dangerous goods training course is designed to be completed in approximately four to five hours. After registering for the course, you’ll work through the training online at your own pace. You can come and go as necessary, so you won’t need to complete the course in one sitting. If questions arise while you’re working on your course, you can get assistance from an online instructor at any time.

You’ll have 60 days to complete the course and pass the exam at the end before you’ll need to renew your subscription. This amount of time is more than enough for most people to confidently receive their certification. Once you complete the course and pass your exam, you’ll receive your IATA Hazmat shipping certification immediately, so you can get to work sooner.

Please note that you’ll need to have DOT certification before starting this course. If you aren’t sure which training course you need, feel free to contact us for individual guidance.
