Classroom Training

All classes, whether ground (DOT 49CFR), air (IATA/ICAO), military air (AFMAN 24-204) or ocean (IMO), are offered as initial or recurrent training classes.

Emphasis is placed on DOT’s 49CFR as it is the “law of the land.” We then install and complement all the required alternative regulations. The 49CFR is used by DOT and FAA enforcement when conducting audits. Knowing and understanding the U.S. regulations goes a long way in communicating compliance with these officials.

Classes are held in our multi-tiered (college-style) training center, complete with state-of-the-art teaching aids, an extensive in-house library, and WiFi access for student laptop usage. Students are taken on tours to see actual distressed shipments and witness why and how the shipments should be prepared correctly. Our teaching style is “real-world” – no lengthy lectures, reciting regulation after regulation. There is total class participation concluded by a written examination.

Student materials include a Study Guide inclusive of Work Projects, current edition of 49CFR and Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG). The alternative regulations, IATA / IMO / AFMAN 24-204, are used in the classroom. This allows the student to use and apply the regulations while keeping training costs down.

JGA provides all refreshments, continental breakfast, catered lunch, and beverages for each day of class. Classes begin at 8:30 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m. each day.
