1-day (6 hours) LIVE virtual classroom course
IATA’s one-day training course on Dry Ice meets the needs of personnel involved in handling, packing, marking and labeling shipments that contain dry ice as a refrigerant. Dry ice, also known as solid carbon dioxide, is considered hazardous material (Hazmat) when transported by air and therefore requires regulatory training. Hazardous materials are substances or items that can potentially harm people, property or the environment and are listed in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations and classified accordingly.
