Welcome to the future of DG by Air learning! Well done to the DG Online Training team for producing a simple and effective method of delivery and learning that sees instant access to the programme performed at your own pace with the full range of back-up and supporting resources to assist your learning and confirming your application of the key learning points of IATA DG by Air. I fully recommended any DG professional to use this route to re-qualify or to get back into the land of IATA DG. For those who are new to the world of Dangerous Goods shipments you should make full use of the instructor on-line assistant facility and the accompanying course manual. You can rewind and do the modules as many times within the generous time window of completion to assist you with attaining full comprehension of the subject. IATA DG by air training has become fun, relevant and ground-breaking – once more.

A comprehensive and well constructed course that proved challenging but ultimately very educational and interesting. It has certainly made me give greater thought when I fly to my declaration about what goods I may carry on board with me and my responsibilities to the aircrew and my fellow passengers. It has certainly given me greater confidence when handling dangerous goods of which I am doing in increasing volumes/quantities. – Thank you
Highly recommended! I took both the Air (Cat 1,2,3) and Road courses. Both were great quality content. The modules were very well structured and educational. There is so much to learn but it is broken down really well. The whole process was fantastic, especially being online, I was worried about taking the info in, but there was no need to worry at all, and both Lisa and Paul are so helpful and supportive. I will be back for more
Thanks for the positve feedback Becky and we’re really pleased you passed the exam! We look forward to working with you again in the future. Paul.

Really well structured and informative course, quick bitesize modules, allowing you to either whizz through, or stop and repeat where required, nice quick quizzes in each module, to allow you to instantly apply the information. So great to be able to learn, and take the exam away from busy office hours.
Very flexible allowing you to fit around a busy work schedule. I would highly recommend.

Excellent online course, very user friendly and easy to digest the information. Recommed the the online route if you want to fit in around a busy schedule as you can pause and go back to the modules whenever you find the right time. Also the option to do the exam at home/office is very convenient. Thanks for the great service.
