Shipping with Dry Ice

This course, "Shipping with Dry Ice", has been designed with specific exercises related to the transportation of dry ice ("carbon dioxide, solid") by air from a shipper's perspective. Our 10 step approach encompasses all of the activities which must be addressed when preparing dry ice for shipment by air. This course has been updated to include recent changes to the regulations, using the 55th Edition of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations.

This course is recommended for individuals who ship dry ice in packaging that does not contain other dangerous goods.

The course meets the requirements for training as specified in Section 1.5 of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations and 49 CFR 172 Subpart H, including testing of participants.

While it's not required, you might find it helpful to follow along with a current copy of the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (and we highly recommend having a copy of the DGR handy if you ship any dangerous goods by air). If you are in need of an up-to-date version of the regulations, you can select to include the price of the book in your registration fee or call us at (919) 246-4847 to order a copy separately. The price of the book includes shipping (2nd day air).

Attention Medical Personnel
Many of our medical clients (clinics, hospitals, clinical trials, labs, doctor offices, etc.) find that our Shipping Infectious Substances course is better suited for their needs. If you only ship infectious substances and diagnostic specimens (either with or without dry ice), we suggest you take a look at Shipping Infectious Substances before making your decision.

FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions



Are your courses "approved" by IATA or the FAA?


No. To our knowledge, neither the FAA nor IATA reviews or evaluates online training courses (and neither does the US DOT). In fact, the FAA will not evaluate any training courses of any kind from any provider (this includes online, classroom, computer-based, etc). IATA does, however, offer a designation called the IATA Endorsed Training School, and these endorsed training schools often advertise their courses as "IATA Approved". We are not an IATA Endorsed Training School. In order to be an endorsed school, the course must be three days long and include training on radioactive materials. Our courses do not cover radioactive materials. According to the IATA website:

"IATA's endorsed training school program is [sic] scheme whereby training schools submit their course material to IATA for review... There is no requirement that training be obtained from an Endorsed School."

We find it interesting that they choose the term "scheme" to refer to their program.




Will taking this course meet my legal training requirements to the FAA and DOT?


Yes it can, but making that determination is up to you, the employer. That's not always the answer people would like to hear, but it's based on the regulations. 49 CFR Part 172.702 requires that employers ensure their employees are "trained in accordance with the requirements prescribed in this subpart."
