Hazmat training group launched
Oct 13, 2008 3:47 PM
The Dangerous Goods Trainers Association (DGTA) has been launched and will hold its first public meeting October 21 in conjunction with LabelMaster’s 2008 Dangerous Goods Instructors’ Symposium in Deerfield Beach FL (see the Events section below).
Dangerous goods trainers specialize in training personnel involved in preparing for dangerous goods shipments and the national and international shipment of regulated substances for transport by road, rail, air and sea.
The mission of the new association is to enhance the professionalism of the hundreds of dangerous goods instructors around the world by promoting high standards of competency through education, communications, networking and a worldwide voluntary, independent instructor certification system. The development of the new certification program, tentatively titled Certified Dangerous Good Trainer, is DGTA’s primary initial objective.
DGTA is organized as an independent sub-association within the Phoenix AZ-based National Environmental, Safety, and Health Training Association (NESHTA). DGTA began formal organizational efforts with NESHTA’s assistance early this year, and expect to complete its organizational work by the end of the year.
