About the course
This course is designed as an add-on for any of our other courses, such as our 'how to pack dangerous goods' course or our 'ADR driver awareness course' depending on the job role. It is also suitable as a stand-alone course. It is a legal requirement for persons to be adequately trained in the handling and carriage of dry ice in accordance with ADR and the IMDG Code at 220.127.116.11.4, and the IMDG Code Chapter 1.3 when shipped as a consignment.
The course covers awareness of dry ice and the provisions surrounding it, concentrating on the provisions for road (ADR) and sea (IMDG Code) transportation, with multimodal implications for air transportation also discussed.
We detail the hazards associated with dry ice, show you how to prepare packagings and overpacks using dry ice as a refrigerant (or as a stand-alone consignment), and how to transport these packages and overpacks compliantly.
The course is entirely practical and video based, presented by one of our Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers and takes approximately 90 minutes to complete. We hate Powerpoint slides as much as you do.
Full guidance is provided to download as a reference from within the course.
