Shipping Hazmat by Air (IATA) – Ops

Course Code: HMT 219

This course provides function-specific hazmat employee training on the latest IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) for dangerous goods air shipments. Hazmat employees who complete this IATA training course are prepared to package, mark, label, load, unload, and document hazardous materials air shipments.

Pre-requisite: We recommend completing Shipping Hazmat by Ground–Ops (49 CFR) to learn the US regulations before you enroll in an IATA DGR or IMDG Code course. 

Effective IATA DGR training is critical to prevent rejected air shipments, customs delays, and US FAA fines now as high as $81,993 per day, per violation. 

Registration includes: 

  • Engaging, interactive IATA training for hazmat employees
  • Relevant excerpts of ICAO/IATA hazmat air shipping requirements 
  • Trusted compliance resources and references to simplify hazmat compliance.
  • Year-round updates to your course resources and alerts about rule changes.
  • 6 months of Lion Membership for complete compliance support.
  • Certificate to demonstrate competence in IATA DGR regulations.

Shipping Hazmat by Air – Ops training covers:

  • Understanding the differences between IATA and DOT (49 CFR)
  • Filling and closing packages for air shipment
  • Marking and labeling packages
  • Preparing the Shipper’s Declaration
  • Reporting and recordkeeping responsibilities

Both US DOT and ICAO/IATA require hazmat training for all "hazmat employees." The IATA DGR requires air shipping employees to repeat training once every 24 months.

This online course is designed to help satisfy IATA DGR training requirements for hazmat air shipping employees and provides function-specific hazmat training for personnel who package, mark, label, load, unload, or document dangerous goods air shipments. Both US DOT and ICAO/IATA require hazmat training for all "hazmat employees."

New IATA DGR rules are in effect as of January 1.
