For personnel listed in Appendix H 6.5 of the IATA DGR | Persons responsible for accepting passenger and crew baggage, managing aircraft boarding areas and other tasks involving direct passenger contacts at an airport.

A safe and efficient air transport system is dependent on a competent workforce, meaning that you must be trained in the functions for which you are responsible – whether or not this is noted in your job title. IATA recognizes that this is best achieved through a Competency Based Training and Assessment approach (CBTA), and therefore this course has been designed following the new Dangerous Goods Training Guidelines on CBTA principles in the IATA DGR appendix H.

This interactive course will guide you in the tasks and responsibilities to ensure that you are competent to perform your job function in compliance with the provisions of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) - appendix H 6.5 (Persons responsible for accepting passenger and crew baggage, managing aircraft boarding areas and other tasks involving direct passenger contacts at an airport), fulfil your dangerous goods training requirements and be in full compliance with the regulations.
