This computer-based course is designed to provide 8 hours of online training outlining the fundamentals of the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) and U.S. Department of Transportation’s (DOT) regulations governing the safe air transportation of radioactive materials. The e-learning includes detailed information relating to the definitions, calculations and requirements for the shipment of radioactive materials by air. Practical exercises are utilized that allow participants to apply the concepts of the training as it is being presented. DOT regulations and handouts are provided in an electronic format to facilitate completing the self-paced course.
This course is especially effective as either an introduction for a new or inexperienced shipper, or as a thorough review for experienced shippers who desire refresher training to satisfy their IATA DGR & DOT 49 CFR HazMat Employee air modal function-specific training requirements. The presentation assumes knowledge of domestic shipping regulations for radioactive materials and concentrates on the additional air requirements and differences.
Successful participants receive a certification stating that the training meets the requirements of 49 CFR 172 Subpart H and IATA DGR Section 1.5. Successful completion is achieved with a passing average score of 80% or better on multiple module exams.
Course Topics include: Identify and Classify Radioactive Material; Determine Most Appropriate Shipping Description; Package Radioactive Material for Air Transport; Apply Correct Markings, Labels, Placards , Shipping Documentation and Emergency Response; Identify State & Operator Variations; Radiation & Contamination Shipping Limits; Operating Experience/Lessons Learned; Transportation Security; and Examinations.
