Radioactive Dangerous Goods for Shippers and Forwarders

Course Lessons: 17
Learner Hours: 8.5

This course offers advanced training for shipping radioactive materials via various transportation modes. It goes beyond general awareness training, assuming prior certification in dangerous goods shipping. It’s designed for those handling, arranging, or loading radioactive materials, excluding limited quantities, or excepted packaging, into conveyances like intermodal containers.

Course Overview

This course provides advanced awareness and procedural training in the shipment of radioactive materials (RM) by all modes of transportation. Coverage here significantly exceeds the Class 7 general awareness training found in most general-purpose DG certification training, and assumes the student has already been trained and certified in general dangerous goods shipping requirements. It is intended as advanced training for shippers, freight forwarders and other transportation personnel who will physically handle, arrange shipment of and/or load radioactive materials (other than RM in limited quantities and/or excepted packaging) into overpacks and conveyances, including intermodal containers.
