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.

The instructor's energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the subject make the class a great learning experience!
The instructor was very very informative, helpful, understandable and pleasant. This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry.
Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
The instructor took a rather drab set of topics and brought them to life with realistic real-life examples.
