A new dangerous goods training programme has been developed by ICAO. The programme consists of training courses and a revised Dangerous Goods Training Manual (Doc 9375P1) which will assist States in complying with the broad principles governing the international transport of dangerous goods by air outlined in Annex 18 and detailed in the Technical Instructions. The programme is directed towards safety inspectors responsible for dangerous goods, but it would benefit anyone with a need for knowledge of the detailed provisions in the Technical Instructions. Individuals who successfully complete a course receive a certificate directly from ICAO.

Dangerous Goods Training Courses

ICAO is offering the courses in one of two ways: in-country or fixed course dates. In-country delivery of courses allows for a large number of students to attend the course without incurring multiple travel costs. This is beneficial for organizations with multiple individuals to train. Fixed course dates are pre-determined by ICAO at a set location.
