Transportation of Dangerous Goods Training

The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDGR) is a federal legislation enacted to promote public safety. These regulations require shippers, carriers and handlers to meet specific standards when preparing or transporting dangerous goods.

What products are considered "dangerous goods"?

Explosives, compressed gases (including aerosols), flammable liquids and solids, oxidizers, toxic and infectious substances as well as corrosives are all products that are regulated under the Act.

Who must be trained?

Any person handling, offering for transport or transporting dangerous goods must receive appropriate training (specific to the mode of transport used). This training must be updated every 24 months for air transport and 36 months for surface transport.

Proper training is based as much on teaching as on practicing. For this reason, our courses maximise situation based learning in order to better prepare your employees to face every day situations.

For our dangerous goods transportation courses we use a stepping stone concept that allows students to learn a procedure that will enable him/her to prepare, handle or inspect shipments to ensure full compliance with federal and/or international legislations. A compliance manual can be created for your specific which allows for an unequalled level of compliance and efficiency.

Students receive a copy of our TDGR Guide Book and/or course notes. All trainees that successfully complete the program will receive a training certificate meeting Transport Canada and/or the CSST requirements.
