Shipping Lithium Batteries By Air

Shipping lithium batteries by air is extremely common, yet it is a complicated process guided by ever- changing regulations. IATA / ICAO requires that any person accepting or offering cells or batteries for transport must receive adequate instructions on these regulations commensurate with their responsibilities. This short online course is an ideal complement to the Air DG training, or as a standalone course for anyone who occasionally ships “Section II” lithium batteries. This course is delivered entirely online and starts at anytime.


Course Description

Lithium batteries can be dangerous in transit and shipping them is a complicated process guided by ever changing regulations. Completing this course is not a dangerous goods certification, but coupled with on the job coaching and documentation of that coaching, it can be used to allow for the transport of lithium batteries under Section II. This course is an excellent complement to CIFFA’s initial or recurrent online courses.
