Through our partnership with St. Mark James Training we offer Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG) training on-line or in class. This course covers required information for individuals that work in the industry of transporting dangerous goods in Canada. This is an 11 module course that takes 4 hours to complete in the classroom format or 4 hours to complete on the on-line format. The on-line TDG course is offered through this website and provides participants with the ability to start and stop the course at their leisure. The on-line course provides access to an almost full time moderator / teacher to help with questions. The on-line course is offered at a price of 29.99 and provides immediate certification upon completion. To register for a on-line TDG course click the link below.

TDG at Winnipeg First Aid
The TDG program at Winnipeg First Aid introduces students to the concept of “controlled goods”. In Canada, there is a list of goods deemed dangerous or hazardous and become part of the “controlled goods list”. If a supplier is in anyway handling controlled goods, he or she has to enforce TDG training among the staff.
TDG training has nine modules to complete, but the program length for classroom and online courses are different. The TDG classroom course runs for four hours while the online course runs for only two hours. There are lecture and laboratory portions included in the classroom program.
Note: In order to proceed to the next modulce (in the online program), the student needs to pass the test at the end of the previous module first.
One of the main topics in a TDG program is the classification of dangerous goods.
- Flammable Liquids
- Flammable Solids
- Oxidizing Substances and/or Organic Peroxides
- Toxic and Infectious Substances
- Radioactive Materials
- Corrosive Substances
- Miscellaneous Products, Substances, or Organisms
Each classification has a set or sets of definitions/characteristics that a product needs to have to be classified as “controlled”. These products have to be contained in a properly labeled container, in accordance with the TDG federal act. Material safety data sheets also have to be provided by the supplier (the sheets contain additional information on the dangerous goods).
TDG Training Credentials
We grant all trainees with credentials for TDG upon completion of the program. They need to have complete attendance and passing grades on the final exams (written and practical). TDG credentials do not expire, which is why we don’t have TDG refreshers available.
We do encourage everyone to retake training every few years to receive an update.
