Air transportation trainings

Train your employees in the transport of dangerous goods by air and the risks that may be associated with it: what are the obligations, issues, the solutions.

A regulated environment

The transportation of dangerous goods by air is governed by IATA (International Air Transport Association), an organization composed of 240 airlines. The ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization), an intergovernmental organization, studies and develops standards related to air transport. The IATA regulations are based on the ICAO recommendations and include specific requirements defined by the airlines.

A manageable risk

Transporting dangerous goods by air in complete safety requires appropriate training. These training courses enable you to learn about, prevent and control the risks associated with the transport of dangerous goods by air. They are necessary to protect your employees, the company, the environment and your goods.

Our Role

Securing your transport

In 1994, BVT obtained IATA accreditation, which allows us to provide training in the field of dangerous goods transport by air. This new accreditation symbolises the evolution of our company and complements the one for road transport. These training courses are subject to recycling before the expiry of the current certificate issued for a period of 24 months.

 

Since then, our trainers, experts in their fields, have been training your teams to make them autonomous, responsive and qualified to ensure the transport of dangerous goods. These training courses are an asset for your employees, they enable them to :

  • Know the regulations concerning the packaging and transport of goods
