Why TDG Training
The Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations have been in effect in Canada since 1985. These regulations assign specific responsibilities to carriers, handlers and shippers.
Anyone handling, transporting or preparing shipments of dangerous goods must therefore undergo TDG training and obtain a training certificate renewable every three years for ground and 2 years for air transport or upon change of employer.
The candidate who successfully completes the course receives a certificate recognized by the competent authorities (Transport Canada, Transports Québec, SAAQ and the USDoT).
Our TDG courses are targeted on specific subjects in order to allow you to learn the essential concepts for your tasks while avoiding information overload and down time.
