FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The length of the validity of your transportation of dangerous goods certificate depends on the means of transportation being used to move the dangerous goods. If the dangerous goods are to be transported by aircraft the certificate is good for 24 months (2 years). If the dangerous goods are to be transported by other modes of transportation (road, sea, etc) the certificate is good for 36 months (3 years). If your transportation of dangerous goods certificate has expired, contact Advanced Consulting & Training today! We will work with you to get your certificates up to date.
According to regulations, anyone who handles, offers for transport, or transports dangerous goods require transportation of dangerous goods certification. The Transportation of Dangerous Goods act defines hading as “loading, unloading, packing or unpacking dangerous goods in a means of containment for the purposes of, in the course of or following transportation and includes storing them in the course of transportation (manutention)” only. This includes a wide range of jobs such as truck drivers, warehouse workers, forklift operators, and many more.
A Transportation of Dangerous Goods certificate is not transferable between employers. That means when you change jobs, even if the responsibilities are the same, you will have to retrain. Your certificate has the name and address of your employer, and a new one must be obtained with updated information when you change jobs. This is done to ensure the highest level of safety and adherence to regulations.
