Melissa Gee

Shipping Receiving Specialist

I really enjoyed the Lithium battery course. It was well constructed and provided useful practical exercises along the way to improve and reinforce my understanding and interpretation and application of the regulations.

It was very convenient to stop & start to fit in with my workload. I would recommend it to any Shipper / Receiver of DG.

Thank you for the opportunity to complete the course.

Shaquille Tinorei

Logistics Coordinator

Very informative! It’s a course that cuts straight to the point and teaches you what you need to know along with testing you along the way. I found it great!

Jason Pfingst

Always a great course, there looks like there's been a few changes since the last time I did it.

Michelle Faithfull

Export Airfreight Co Ordinator

Daunting at first yes, but definitely learnt a lot more than sitting in a class.

So much better than sitting in a class!

Meghan Leigh

Research Co-ordinator Team Lead Icon Research

We at Icon Research exclusively use the DG Trainer portal and love the ease and convenience of working with their online program. The support team is incredible, and I've never waited longer than a few hours to get access for a new staff member or re-training certification access for current staff.

It was a lot easier than last time :) It was easier to follow and understand. I think the examples and explanations were a lot clearer.

It's always a great experience with you all.

Elizabeth Jenkinson

The course covers a lot of information which it has to, but is easy to follow and understand which is great. I'm always grateful when these types of programs are simple to follow and make sense for our day to day work.
