Dangerous goods put people, property, or the environment at risk due to their chemical or physical properties. The hazards associated with dangerous goods are magnified when they are moved or transported. Accordingly, Canada’s Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) Act ensures public safety by specifying strict regulations that must be followed when transporting these types of materials.

Anyone involved in shipping or receiving dangerous goods not only needs to know the TDG regulations, but also must be aware of what they are handling, what its hazards are, and what to do in case of an emergency. This Transportation of Dangerous Goods Canada (TDG) online course provides an overview of the TDG regulations and teaches how to recognize and handle dangerous goods.

IMPORTANT: This course uses Virtual Proctoring. Virtual proctoring is the use of web-based technology to supervise an exam or the delivery of educational material, including online courses, exams, and even form completions. By using facial detection and recognition technology, the software verifies the identity of the learner and ensures learners are following the session rules. This means that it not only verifies identity, but also whether or not users are paying attention. All of this is done using the capabilities already built in to web browsers and webcams, so no additional software is required to install.

Assessment: Testing conducted throughout this online course is designed to reinforce the information presented. A mark of 80% must be achieved in order to receive a certificate of completion. Participants are able to repeat the course two times if the pass mark is not achieved on the first attempt.
