IATA Dangerous Goods training is evolving from traditional learning to competency-based training and assessment (CBTA) as agreed by ICAO. We have already begun the move to this skills-based approach and therefore you might choose to register instead for the new corresponding courses: Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) for Preparing DG Consignments - Initial.

Find out more about the CBTA approach well-defined functions, current courses and previous corresponding categories

Categories 1 & 2 will correspond to CBTA DGR Reference H.6.1 | Preparing Dangerous Goods Consignments

The 63rd edition of the Dangerous Goods Regulations includes the provisions on competency-based training and assessment (CBTA) as agreed by the ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel in DGP/27 (September 2019). There is a two-year transition period and therefore, the training provisions from the 61st edition may continue to be used until 31 December 2022.

Please note that this course will be retired by 30 September 2022.
