About This Training
The TDG Regulations are a set of rules set out by Transport Canada that prescribe safety standards and shipping requirements for thousands of different dangerous goods. The Regulations also provide a means of communicating the nature and level of danger associated with chemicals.
These courses cover the regulations for ground transport within Canada and are based on an employee's job function.
Upon successful completion, a 3 year TDG Certificate is generated and emailed to the Training Administrator, along with a Performance Record.
This course is available in English or in French, when a trainee logs into the training they can choose their preferred language.

In mid-July 2017 the Transportation of Dangerous Goods Regulations (TDGR) were amended to be harmonized with other global regulations. Those regulations are the United Nations (UN) recommendations (19th edition) and subsequently the ICAO as well as the IMDG Code. Finally, Canada's TDG regulations have been better integrated with the US equivalent, 49 CFR regulations.Learn more here.
