IATA Training Seminar

Shipping Dangerous Goods by Air 1-Day Update for Shippers, Packagers & Freight Forwarders


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.


1 ATTENDEE (with out book): $475


  • YOU MUST HAVE ATTENDED THE COMPLIANCE SEMINAR or DOT training before attending this course.

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.
