IATA Accredited Training Schools (ATS)

IATA training partners are independent organizations authorized by IATA to deliver dangerous goods training programs locally. 

Be part of an international training network

A training partnership with IATA authorizes you to deliver IATA training courses and ensures students/professionals upgrade their professional competencies to IATA standards.

Your role as an ATS

The ATS is entitled to deliver specialized technical and management training courses, such as:

  • Dangerous Goods Regulations - Initial
  • Dangerous Goods Regulations - Recurrent
  • Dangerous Goods Regulations - Awareness 
  • Infectious Substances Regulations
  • Radioactive Materials

Becoming an ATS

Criteria for endorsement are based on Section 1.5 of IATA's Dangerous Goods Regulations and IATA's Dangerous Goods Training Standards. Additionally, the school must undergo a rigorous review of teaching materials, tests and instructors' credentials. To maintain endorsement, the school must pass an annual re-accreditation review and can be audited at any time.
