The 2 day Carriage of Lithium Batteries course provides delegates with the skills and knowledge required to correctly handle and prepare shipments of lithium batteries for transport by all modes of transport. We give delegates the confidence to transfer the knowledge of the IATA, IMDG and ADR regulations into their work environment. This course supports the regulation changes regarding the carriage of Lithium Batteries in 2017. Designed to assist shippers and freight handling organisations in the correct transporting of these dangerous goods.

Lithium batteries are divided into two sections
  1. Lithium Content type – e.g., Lithium ion, Lithium metal 
  2. How they are going to be transported e.g. stand alone batteries, lithium batteries contained in or packed with equipment.
By the end of the course delegates will be able to
  • Correctly prepare a consignment of lithium batteries for all modes of transportation
  • Validate whether a consignment has been prepared correctly for all modes of transportation
  • Adhere to practices and standards regarding acceptance and responsibilities for the preparation and handling of lithium batteries for transportation.
