Why Become a DGSA?
Becoming a Dangerous Goods Safety Advisor has always been an admirable objective, and comes with a host of benefits, whether it is completed by an individual looking to offer their services or simply add to their industry expertise, or by a company looking to reduce their costs by having an in-house advisor.
To prepare for the exams, Altrain ADR hosts a 5-day DGSA training course, specifically focused on the Road, Core and All Classes of Dangerous Goods modules of the DGSA exam, which we usually schedule to run the week before any given DGSA exam. Our course covers the key points you would expect, such as:
- The roles and responsibilities of a DGSA
- Marking up the ADR Volumes
- ADR Regulations
- Exam preparation, including mock tests
All of our courses are delivered by Dangerous Goods Safety Advisors with years of experience in the industry, so you can always be sure that our instructors are up-to-date, and knowledgable.
After completing your training with us, the exam itself will be hosted directly by SQA.
