FAQsDangerous Goods Training

Is Dangerous Goods training IATA certified?

Mayo Medical Laboratories' online Dangerous Goods Training is intended for use by our clients and vendors who may ship medical specimens to Mayo from time to time.

The training material is based on both United States' regulations (US Department of Transportation) and also on ICAO/IATA regulations.

Although no training modules are or can be "certified" or "recognized" by IATA or by air carriers, we believe our online module fulfills the IATA training requirements. It is the responsibility of the dangerous goods "shipper" to train their employees in the IATA regulations. The "shipper" can use their own training methods, Mayo's training, or another source of training, as long as that training meets the requirements of general familiarization, function specific, and safety training.
