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

Our training imparts mandatory knowledge for dangerous goods safety advisors to apply and implement applicable regulations. The basic training for dangerous goods officers, ADR (road) and RID (rail) also serves as preparation for the examination by the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK).

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 covered in the training courses are largely derived from subsections and ADR/RID and include legal principles (GGBefG, GbV, GGVSEB, RSEB, GGAV), all relevant content relating to road transport (GGVSEB/ADR) and all important content relating to rail transport (GGVSEB/RID).

As a participant, you will receive a training certificate from us. After presenting this confirmation of successful participation in the basic training for dangerous goods safety advisors, ADR (road) and RID (rail), you can register for the examination for the road and rail transport sectors at any Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Germany.

After passing the exam, you will receive an EC training certificate from the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) which is valid for 5 years.

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.
