Consignors ship dangerous goods while consignees receive the dangerous goods. The Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Act and Regulations require both the consignor and consignee to be adequately trained and hold a TDG Certificate of Training for their work. The six modules of this course provide a detailed description of the parts of the TDG Act and Regulations that consignors and consignees must know. This includes classification, documentation, safety marks, means of containment, and emergency response.
Examples and quizzes reinforce learning and each module has a self-assessment to test understanding of the material.
A record of completion is provided by CCOHS upon successful completion of the final exam. A formal TDG Certificate of Training is issued by the employer when they determine their employee has a sound knowledge of all the topics and has received workplace specific training that directly relate to their duties with dangerous goods. The course was developed by CCOHS.
Average time to complete this course is about 8.5 hours.
