Canadian law requires that any person shipping, handling, or transporting dangerous goods must be trained in accordance with Transport Canada’s standards by means of relevant transportation.
This TDG certification program has been developed in compliance with Transport Canada’s Transportation of Dangerous Goods Act and Regulations. The training course consists of 7 Lessons and a final exam. Once you pass your exam, you may print your certificates of completion (wallet sized) along with the letter of endorsement.
A TDG certificate is valid for three (3) years. TDG certificates are not transferable. A new certificate is required each time a worker changes employment.
All our courses are backed by Trailwalk Holdings LTD of Halifax, Nova Scotia, a Safety Training Company. Our trained professionals combined content from WHMIS 1988 and the new Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling for chemicals (GHS) enacted in 2015.
