Competency Based DG Training - Personnel Responsible for Accepting Passenger and Crew Baggage

Dangerous Goods 12Brochure Button

Dangerous goods are commodities that can be dangerous in specific circumstances. These materials may be transported by air only when they are properly identified, packed, marked, and labeled according to international and national regulations. Dangerous goods consist not only of obvious substances such as corrosives, explosives, and flammables but also include less apparent articles like thermometers, refrigerants, and some everyday household items such as aerosols, perfumes, and cleaning detergents.

European and international legislation requires that all aviation staff, whether directly or indirectly involved in the transport of goods classified as dangerous goods, receive training appropriate to their functions. This training course covers those staff members whose functions require them to receive Dangerous Goods Awareness training regularly. The scope and content of SofemaOnline training courses are defined in national law.


This training is based on the latest edition of the IATA DGR and is designed for flight operations officers and flight dispatchers. This course was developed according to the recommendations of the IATA Dangerous Goods Training Guidance 2023 for competency-based training and assessment. It is based on the tasks that flight operations officers and flight dispatchers would typically perform, and training and assessment are required. The training has been produced to help attendees achieve appropriate knowledge and skills in their functions specific to the transport of dangerous goods by air.
