Transportation of Dangerous Goods

Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) refers to the shipment of dangerous goods across Canada by road, rail, water and air. These shipments can range from industrial chemicals to manufactured goods and they can present a threat to public safety if not handled correctly.

If you have no previous TDG experience, you begin by taking the initial ground class. The initial air class is only taken if required in your workplace. Ground training must be re-certified every three years and air training is re-certified every two years.
