E-Learning Course for Road Transport of Dangerous Goods General Awareness Training

ChemRegs has produced an innovative E-Learning Course: Transport of Dangerous Goods Awareness, consisting of 11 information-packed and easy-to-use modules to give you a good understanding of the rules and procedures on the transport of dangerous goods by road.

Legal requirement

All persons involved in the transport of dangerous goods must have appropriate dangerous goods general awareness training. This mandatory training states that these you must be familiar with the general requirements for the carriage of dangerous goods.

Our new E-Learning Course will help you to fulfil this legal obligation. It will give trainees a comprehensive understanding of the rules and procedures that are in place to stop people, property, or the environment from being harmed or damaged when transporting dangerous goods.

Who is this course for?

This value-packed course is for anyone who comes into contact with dangerous goods as part of their everyday duties. It is designed for all those who consign, receive, pack, load, fill, manufacture or handle dangerous goods by road.

The course assumes no previous knowledge of dangerous goods and takes the student through the key concepts of each module, reinforcing and testing the acquired knowledge as they proceed. Only when the student has successfully answered the questions at the end of each module are they allowed to proceed to the next module.

When all the modules have been successfully completed, a certificate of training is issued for the successful candidate. The certificate will incorporate a suggested refresher training date.

How is the E-learning course delivered?

The course is Internet based. Each student will receive a user name and login password. Once logged on, the student will simply start the first module and will proceed at their own pace of learning until the course is completed.

The benefits of E-learning

This user-friendly course provides for optimum flexibility in time, location and ability. Staff which need the training do not need to be taken away from their roles or travel to attend a classroom-based course. Management will have confirmation that the prescribed training has been delivered and been understood.

The course also allows for competence variability i.e. differences in knowledge and experience. The training will allow staff to proceed at their own pace.

The course will be continuously updated as the regulations are revised and changed and so will be able to be used for refresher training as required.

Affordable training

This affordable course has low prices per trainee, discounts for multiple users and ultimately means reduced costs, as trainees do not have to travel or be away from the office to do the course.
