Very good training, lots of detailed information and working with the online training materials means I could do it in my own time. I recommend this format of training, it works well.
Thanks Marta! It has been a pleasure working with you. Kind regards, Paul.
A thorough course, with all necessary themes covered. It’s easy to follow. In comparison to the in-person few days course with a lecturer – here you can pause, rewind and go through sections which are harder in your own pace and as many times as you need. I actually got a better result with this, studying at home on my own than with a in-person 3-day course in Heathrow. I sat 3 DG shipper exams by now.
Thanks for the great feedback Roxanne! We look forward to welcoming you back for your next revalidation training.

A flexible way to re-validate my training around my other work commitments, meaning I didn’t need to take 3 days away from the office. The course is well structured, and being able to pause and re-play the videos allows you to double-check anything covered on the course quickly.
Having held the IATA previously, as well as being a DGSA for ADR purposes, this flexibility is ideal, especially if you need a more extended break to properly read and understand topics in more detail than you generally get at in-person courses, where you have to go at the trainer’s pace.
Simon Otter –
Excellent course and service
I found doing the online course a lot better than having to actually sit in a hotel because you can take your time with the modules and make sure that you have covered everything ready for the actual exam. I hope that this will continue in the future.
Susan Cartman –
Extremely thorough training course. After over 30 years of attending classroom-based training, and my attention span on computer-based training quite short! once I got my head focused on the online training, I found it a pleasure, with no interruptions during, unlike the classroom-based course, along with being able to do the training at your own pace. Extremely well put together, and Lisa provided full information prior to training commencing, along taking the examination.
Would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to switch from classroom-based training to online. Thank you both very much.
Thanks so much Susan for your kind words! It was a pleasure to work with you and we look forward to seeing you again in 2024.
