This is a CAA approved 3-day training course and open book examination, covering the requirements of the IATA Dangerous Goods by Air Regulations. Someone possessing this qualification will be an asset to their department as carriers ask for more assurances about the packaging and labelling of cargoes.

Note that each participant will need the use of an up to date IATA manual for this course. (The manual usually changes annually but if you have a 2020 version that will be acceptable this year.) A few copies are available on loan but will need to be returned to the Trainer (by post) after the course. Other participants will have to purchase or borrow a manual independently.

There will be a 1000 start on the first day but subsequent start, finish and break times will be a matter of negotiation with the trainer.

There is unlikely to be another full IATA course organised centrally until 2023.

Virtual - Sealed Source Users Course Thu 6 May 2021   14:00 [Places]

This course provides an introduction to working safely with sealed radioactive sources (a sealed source contains radioactive material and is manufactured in such a way that the material cannot be dispersed).

This course is aimed at supervisors of UV equipment and others who are responsible for areas where artificial sources of UV equipment are used. It gives an understanding of the hazards of ultraviolet radiation and practical methods of protection from artificial sources. It may also be appropriate for users of artificial UV sources, although appropriate practical training on specific equipment should be provided within departments.

A microbiological safety cabinet (MSC) is a vital piece of equipment that helps to prevent exposure to biological hazards. All containment laboratory users and their supervisors should know how to use MSCs effectively, what the standards are for the different levels of containment, and how the facilities are managed. This course will help both users and managers understand their responsibilities in creating a safe working area and provide both theory and practical knowledge on the safe and effective use of tissue culture (Class II) cabinets.

Anyone who is or will be a first-time user or supervisor of x-ray equipment or other equipment generating ionising radiation is expected to attend this course before they begin work. Existing users and supervisors of these items of equipment who are new to the University should also attend.
