Radioactive Syllabus

This course is intended for Shippers,  Forwarders and Carriers who handle and ship Radioactive Material in the normal course of transportation.


    1. If you ship Exempted Radioactive Materials (smoke alarms etc.) and are currently (IATA, 49CFR, IMDG) certified, no additional training is required.
    2. If you ship Excepted Radioactive Materials by air, and are currently IATA certified, you have the option of taking DGI’s Online Excepted Radioactive Materials course.

DGI’s 2-Day Radioactive seminar will fully certify you to classify and prepare Radioactive Materials for shipment in commerce. This course will enable you to transport RAM both domestic and international with ease.
