IATA Accredited Training School

IATA's Accredited Training School (ATS) Network is a recognized and valued community of Dangerous Goods training schools providing IATA certified training worldwide.

Accredited Training Schools offer their clients quality, harmonized and accepted dangerous goods training in areas of vital importance to the aviation industry.

A training partnership with IATA authorizes you to deliver IATA training courses using your own materials and qualified instructors and enables your students to upgrade their professional competencies to IATA standards.

Our current ATSs are listed on our Training Network page.

Please check with your nearest ATS for class timing, schedules, and pricing.

The Accredited Training School (ATS) program has recently begun the transition to a new CBTA Center certification program in readiness to meet the new training provisions based on a competency-based approach for training and assessment.
