Transportation of biological substances  is regulated under TDGR for all modes of transport.  Specific classification and packaging requirements must be met. These standards are accepted and enforced worldwide in order to prevent the spread of diseasesAll our TDG training programs include air (FedEx) and ground transportation requirements and meet Transport Canada’s requirements.  These courses can also used as refresher programs which are required every 24 months for air and 36 months for ground.
