IATA Live Animals Transportation aviation training course

When shipping or accepting live animals for air transportation, you have to know how to use and comply with the IATA Live Animals Regulations (LAR). The IATA LAR is the global standard and essential guide to transporting live animals by air in a safe, humane and cost-effective manner. The expertise acquired in this course will also allow you to identify business development opportunities for your company as this type of transportation requires a high degree of technical skills. Whether you are a shipper, a freight forwarder, an airline or an animal care professional, a working knowledge of LAR is a must to ensure that live animals are transported humanely and in compliance with airline regulations and animal welfare standards. Note: This course meets the training requirements for handling and acceptance personnel, as per the Live Animals Regulations (LAR) Section 1.4
