Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

Our course content is based on the IATA and ICAO requirements and applicable worldwide.

Yes, if buying the course for your employees, we can create a custom version of this course which reflects the tasks carried out. This is encouraged and a key concept of the new CBTA approach. 

In the UK, CAA Approval is not required for basic (awareness) category training, this includes what was formerly known as Category 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. (Reference: CAP483, Appendix 6.)

The full Dangerous Goods by Air Certificate (formerly category 6) training requires CAA approval. We work with Irvine Meres Limited, a CAA approved training provider to provide these courses and the training is delivered by an experienced CAA approved instructor.

Our training is compliant with the IATA DGR 1.5 and meets the requirements of the UK CAA. 

Our training is not IATA approved as this would add unnecessary and significant cost to our customers. IATA approval is not required in most countries, including the UK. IATA approval does not by default meet the requirements of the national regulator.

Our online courses include two quizzes which require a passing score of 75%. The first quiz must be achieved before progressing to the second.

In the event of a failure, the quiz can be re-attempted up to 3 times. 

Learners have 6 months to complete an online course from enrolment date. 

Previously, IATA DGR Table 1.5.A listed job functions and categories that specified the syllabus for each function. This is no longer the case and the old categories no longer exist. 

This has been replaced with a competency based training approach (CBTA) which does include example syllabuses for job roles, but the responsibility is now placed on the employer to assess what training is required for their staff, rather than a pre-determined list.
