What is the IATA DGR?
The International Air Transport Association’s Dangerous Goods Regulations (IATA DGR) is the manual used by hazmat shippers, freight forwarders, brokers, and airlines to mitigate the risks posed by hazardous materials during air transport. The IATA DGR combines international hazmat regulations from the United Nations, the ICAO TI, with unique requirements and preferences of member airlines—including passenger airlines and major cargo carriers like UPS and FedEx.

I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
Lion is my preferred trainer for hazmat and DOT.
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
Excellent job. Made what is very dry material interesting. Thoroughly explained all topics in easy-to-understand terms.
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided pertinent information above and beyond the questions that were asked.
The instructor kept the class engaged and made learning fun. There was a lot of information to cover but time flew by. I will definitely use Lion in the future!
