The Dangerous Goods Symposium for Instructors (DGIS III) was held at the Embassy Suites, Deerfield Beach, Florida. The symposium ran from October 21st to 24th. The agenda focus was “Best Practices”.
The symposium opened with the Dangerous Goods Training Association (DGTA) meeting. The DGTA is now up and running under the auspices of NESHTA (National Environmental, Safety and Health Trainers Association). The first step to becoming a certified Dangerous Goods Trainer will be to obtain your CIT – Certified Instructional Technologist, from NESHTA. To prepare for the test, one would sit the NESHTA’s Designing and Delivering Effective Training workshop, then the test. The certification programme for dangerous goods instructors is in the design stages.
