FAQs Dangerous Goods Training
Is the Dangerous Goods Training course/test different from the online packing and shipping information that you offer?
Yes. By law, any person who causes dangerous goods to be transported by a public carrier must follow specific regulations and must have proof of training. The online Dangerous Goods Training is intended to assist hospital employees, courier drivers, and others who may classify, package, or transport medical specimens to comply with US DOT and ICAO/IATA rules and regulations.

- If I am not shipping a Category A Infectious Substance, do I still need to take the Dangerous Goods Training?
- Why not simply classify all medical specimens as Category A? That way I would be sure that I never "under-classify" any shipments.
- Do I need to keep a certificate of training with me whenever I transport Category A specimens?
- Does Mayo Medical Laboratories need to have a copy of the hospital client's or courier's certificate of training?
