CBTA-for-DGR.jpg

During 2022, 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. The 63rd edition of the Dangerous Goods Regulations includes guidance on competency-based training and assessment (CBTA) as agreed by the ICAO Dangerous Goods Panel in DGP/27 (September 2019).

 

Transition period

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.
