We offer the only UK CAA approved online dangerous goods by air training. We are also the only IATA Competency Training and Assessment Centre in the UK.


Dangerous Goods Online Training Limited is now accredited by IATA as a Competency Training and Assessment Centre to provide online dangerous goods training for specific well-defined job functions in accordance with the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations.

As the only IATA accredited training provider in the United Kingdom, we can now offer internationally recognized qualifications for learners that successfully complete an accredited training course with us.

The Only UK CAA Approved Dangerous Goods by Air Training

At Dangerous Goods Online Training Limited, we have pioneered the UK’s first and only Civil Aviation Authority approved online course for training personnel on safely transporting hazardous materials. The cloud-based platform provides a comprehensive package that covers vital international regulations while meeting the same certification standards of any traditional classroom setting. With this modern approach to compliance, companies can ensure their staff is carefully trained in dangerous goods transport protocols – ensuring all applicable laws are met across air, road, sea or inland waterways.

Dangerous Goods training must be provided to employees for the requirements that correspond to their responsibilities. This training must cover the following:

• A general familiarization course – aimed at providing familiarity with general provisions

• The dangerous goods training must be relevant to the function for which the employee is responsible, and it must include training in the requirements pertinent to that function

• Safety courses must cover handling dangerous goods, emergency procedures, and the hazards they present.

The hiring of an employee in a position that involves the transport of dangerous goods or the processing of passengers or cargo requires training or verification.

In order to ensure knowledge is current, recurrent training must take place within 24 months of previous training.

Upon completion of training, a test must be taken to verify understanding. Successful completion of the test must be documented.

It is necessary to maintain training records, and must include the following:

• Name of the individual

• Completion date of the most recent training

• Training materials used to meet the training requirements should be described, copied, or referred to

• Contact information of the organization providing the training; and verification that the training was completed satisfactorily.

If requested by the appropriate authority, the training record must be made available.
