Training Services

An Overview of Our Training

JGA training has a broad spectrum of courses available for DOT, IATA, IMO and AFMAN 24-204 regulations. We have assembled the courses from proven and approved training classes, taking an intuitive approach reviewing and delivering required regulatory information processes unique to the hazmat industry. Many years of valuable student feedback and surveys, and a close proximity to our convenient, adjacent packing warehouse, have made our program effective and enjoyable.

All of our students receive technical support as long as they participate and remain in a current JGA certification program. This includes companies and their students that participate in private, public, or online training programs. While participants leave our classes with a thorough understanding of the regulations, if they don’t practice it on a daily basis, they may need reassurance and additional direction when it comes time to prepare an actual shipment. This unique association with our customers and students is how we set ourselves apart from other training organizations.

Hazardous Materials & Dangerous Goods Training

Training is mandated for all individuals involved in the transportation of hazardous materials in Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations (49CFR), Part 172, Subpart H. JGA is dedicated to helping companies fulfill the aforementioned training requirements by offering comprehensive training in ground, air, vessel transportation, and DoD regulations. Our courses are designed to give hazmat employees the skills necessary to prepare, offer, accept, and transport hazardous materials in compliance with DOT’s regulations as well as international (IATA/IMO), military  air (AFMAN) and other industry standards and best practices.

Primary focus is on DOT’s regulations (49CFR) in order to establish full compliance with the competent authority in the United States. Then we install and complement all the required alternative regulations.

Classes are held in our college-style training center, complete with high-tech teaching aids, and students can use their laptops with our WiFi capabilities. 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. 

In addition to regularly scheduled public classes, JGA offers online courses and customized on- or off-site training classes. On-site classes can be tailored to your organization’s needs, based on the type of product you handle, and the mode/s of transportation you utilize. Our scheduling is flexible and can be designed around your production and staffing requirements.
