It includes the most recent TDG regulatory amendments in SOR/2020-23 published in the Canada Gazette. Note, this e-course focuses on road transportation. Therefore, it does NOT cover the 6.2(l) ICAO and 6.2(m) IMDG training requirements in Section 6.2 of Part 6 in the TDG Regulations.

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 relates to their duties with dangerous goods.
The course was developed by CCOHS.
Because TDG training is job-specific, the employer is responsible for determining the required training, assessing the worker’s knowledge and experience, and issuing the Certificate of Training. Refer to Transport Canada’s bulletin on TDG training requirements for further information.
Although a certificate of completion is provided when this e-course is successfully completed (final exam is passed), it does NOT serve as a valid TDG Certificate of Training. The formal TDG Certificate of Training must be issued by the employer when they determine the employee has a sound knowledge of all the topics (the educational component) and has received workplace specific training that directly relates to their duties with transporting dangerous goods. A sample TDG training certificate is available from Transport Canada’s TDG Bulletin on TDG training.
Prior technical knowledge of the transportation of dangerous goods system is not a requirement. However, familiarity with practices in the transportation industry is helpful.
Recommended as an overview for all employees.
We also offers a comprehensive Transportation of Dangerous Good (TDG) Online Training course for managers and supervisors, TDG coordinators, and those who have responsibilities for determining the training requirements for employees handling dangerous goods.
