Professional Skills for DGR Instructors - Categories 1,2,3,6

People learn best through practice and this also applies to IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) training programs.

The challenge for those who design and deliver Dangerous Goods (Hazmat) Training is how to overcome the technical nature of the subject and incorporate active learning into their training design and delivery.

This course focuses on techniques and strategies to: plan a robust Dangerous Goods training program; open a training session; impart learning through active learning; sequence learning activities to ensure an effective mix and flow; and, conclude a training session with an emphasis on knowledge transfer — applying the learning back on the job.

Participants will learn and practice a variety of core techniques to lead adult learning, instructional design and facilitation techniques. In addition, ample opportunity will be available to apply these techniques and strategies during the course.
