About the course


Training in the general provisions for the carriage of dangerous goods by road is a legal requirement for all persons involved in their transport.

This includes manufacturers, transport office staff, packers, loaders, drivers if they do not hold an ADR licence, and all persons involved in the preparation and transport of dangerous goods packed as limited quantities and excepted quantities.

This course will provide you with a general overview of the ADR provisions. The course is entirely online and allows you to work through at your own pace.

Downloadable guidance is included with the course for you to reference back to at a later date, lessons are accompanied by quizzes and complex provisions are explained by video with accompanying examples.

Additional information


This training is also designed to fulfil the theoretical requirements of the function-specific and safety training, as detailed in ADR Chapter 1.3, for common roles such as packers, loaders, unloaders and consignors. 

However, because all operations are different, we can not verify the competency of employees, which we recommend should be monitored or verified by the employer.
