About the course


It is a legal requirement that all persons preparing and shipping Section II packages of lithium batteries packed with or contained in equipment, receive adequate instruction as mandated by IATA 1.6.

Our online training course will teach you how to ship lithium batteries to these rules.

The course covers what lithium batteries are, why they are potentially dangerous and how they are described in the regulations.

Our straightforward training will guide you in selecting the most appropriate packaging for your shipment, help you determine whether marks are required and how to complete any required documentation.

Full video examples show you the main packing methods for lithium batteries.

The course is entirely online and allows you to work through at your own pace. You can return and come back to the course at any point and pick up where you left off.

Downloadable guidance is included within the course and we'll also send you a copy in the post for ease of reference.

Your performance is assessed at the end of each section, so there's no big test at the end. A certificate is provided immediately upon successful completion of all sections, exercises and questions, which lasts for two years.
