VRT 630

Basic training for Dangerous Goods Officers, Road (ADR) and Rail (RID)

Below you will find our range of topics for this training.

As soon as a company is involved in the transport of dangerous goods and is assigned obligations as a participant based on the regulation, at least one Dangerous Goods Officer must be appointed in writing (§ 3 of the Dangerous Goods Officer Ordinance [GbV]). The Dangerous Goods Officer must be in possession of a valid training certificate for the relevant mode of transport. The training certificate is only issued if training recognised by the Chamber of Industry and Commerce has been completed and an examination has been successfully passed.

Our training, which lasts several days, provides you with comprehensive knowledge about the entire subject of dangerous goods in rail and road traffic and prepares you for the Chamber of Industry and Commerce examination and the work of a Dangerous Goods Officer.

The subject areas to be dealt with in the training courses result largely from subsections 1.8.3.3 and 1.8.3.11 of the Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR) and the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Rail (RID). The Chamber of Industry and Commerce examination only takes place after completing this course without absenteeism and with the certificate of complete participation by RailTraining as an approved Chamber of Industry and Commerce training sponsor.

For participants with no prior knowledge of dangerous goods, we recommend our basic seminars Dangerous Goods Regulations for Rail (VRT 610) and/or Dangerous Goods Regulations for Roads (VRT 620) as an introduction to the subject.

Additonal or different topics are possible by arrangement.
