Training Overview

This course provides detailed descriptions of all aspects of the Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) system for TDG by road. The course will help employers, owners, managers, supervisors, TDG coordinators, and those who have responsibilities for determining the training requirements for employees who will be handling dangerous goods, meet their responsibilities to ensure that all work involving dangerous goods is done properly according to the requirements of the TDG Act and Regulations. The record of training expires after three years.

Average time to complete this course is about 4 hours in class or 4.5 hours virtually. Please note this course was previously advertised as 3.5 hours.
