We're running dangerous goods (DG) courses throughout New Zealand to provide training and qualification for the carriage of DG.

The two day course is targeted particularly at Part 135 and 137 operators who carry DG as part of their normal business, and is applicable to all personnel involved in the handing of DG.

Private pilots and other commercial operators also require DG training and should consider attending.

Topics include:

  • carriage of DG for passengers and crew
  • carriage of DG under exceptions contained in Part 92 and the ICAO Technical Instructions
  • carriage of DG as cargo including packing, shipping, and accepting DG.

The course is not designed for personnel who want to be DG specialists, rather it is designed for operators who carry common DG items as listed in AC92-2.

The course is a significant step up from previous DG awareness courses in the knowledge and skills required to handle DG safely and in compliance with civil aviation rules and ICAO Technical Instructions.

A certificate of qualification in accordance with CAR 92.203 will be presented on successful completion of the course.
