ORP Consultancy offers CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority Australia) approved ‘plug and play’ training programs for dangerous goods by air.
We can adapt the training course to your needs, aim it at the specific dangerous goods class(es) that your company handles.
This eliminates candidates being overloaded with information that has no use and meaning to them and we only focus on the topics and dangerous goods classes they need to know.
The required exam will focus on the DG class(es) chosen (note that after successful completion of the exam the participant is only allowed to process dangerous goods classes as mentioned on the certificate).
The ‘plug and play’ scenario is currently offered as a dedicated customer training course. Contact us if you would like more information.
Our approved infectious substances training course focusses on, and is limited to, Class 3 Flammable Liquids, division 6.2 Infectious Substances, Infectious substances category B (UN 3373) and dry ice (UN 1845).
This course will give you the, or refresh your, knowledge to prepare infectious substances for transport by airfreight.
Lithium is highly volatile and reacts with water by forming lithium hydroxide, a highly flammable hydrogen.
When lithium batteries get wet, and/ or short out, they can ignite and explode. Hazards are the smoke and fumes as well as the gas from fire. It is highly poisonous and potentially deadly.
Our approved Lithium Battery training course will provide you with the knowledge to prepare, pack and document your lithium battery shipments properly for airfreight.
SEA & ROAD FREIGHT
Amendment 40-20 edition of the IMDG Code may be used on an optional basis from 1 January 2021 until it becomes mandatory on June 1 2022. During this extended transitional period Amendment 39-18 can continue to be used.
Our IMDG 40-20 training program will start in May 2021, keep an eye on our website and the training schedule for the dates.
Marine Order 41, governed by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), as well as chapter 1.3 of the IMDG Code requires general awareness or familiarisation training and function-specific training for shore-based personnel (i.e. shippers, packers, consolidators, freight forwarders).
Our IMDG training course provides you with the knowledge to navigate the IMDG code to pack, mark & label, document and load containers of dangerous goods for transport via sea.
For shippers who only handle a limited amount of dangerous goods classes, we can structure and deliver the IMDG course with only those DG classes in mind. This will result in a ‘fit for purpose’ training program that will best suit your needs as a shipper of dangerous goods via sea freight.
Our awareness training for dangerous goods via road provides you with the knowledge to navigate the Australian Dangerous Goods Code for road and rail (ADGC) so that you can prepare, pack and document your shipments of dangerous goods via road transport.
This is not an approved course for obtaining a dangerous goods drivers licence! Unfortunately we do not offer approved courses for this purpose.
