Regulations and materials will be provided to facilitate completing the course during 6 hours in the classroom and 2+ hours completing the written exam.
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 score of 80% or better on a written exam.
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 Written Exam.
This is an advanced class and strongly recommend attending our DOT/NRC Radioactive Waste, Packaging, Transportation and Disposal Training or an equivalent course before attending this Radioactive Material Air Shipping course.
