DG Trainers Association to Host Virtual Dangerous Goods Conference
As acting chairperson of the DGTA, Lion Technology Inc. Vice President Scott Dunsmore will welcome attendees when the virtual conference begins on May 11 at 11 AM ET.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused a major shift for dangerous goods training—away from in-person seminars and workshops and toward virtual options like online courses and video conferencing.
“This past year, dangerous goods trainers had to adapt to meet demand for virtual training, and learned some important lessons long the way,” Dunsmore says. “The DGTA virtual conference gives professionals an opportunity to come together, share lessons learned, and prepare for what’s next.”
Trainer skills and lessons learned from the pandemic will be among the many topics explored during the virtual conference. Among the speakers slated to appear during the conference are long time DG trainers, industry leaders, and representatives from PHMSA and IATA.
The conference is open to both DGTA members and non-members. More information about the Virtual Dangerous Goods Conference is available on DGTA’s website (www.dgta.org).
This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!
Process & Resource Administrator
This training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
This course went above my expectations from the moment I walked in the door. The instructor led us through two days packed with useful compliance information.
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

Hazardous Waste Professional
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
Excellent course. Very interactive. Explanations are great whether you get the questions wrong or right.
