Training is essential to comply with OHS and Chain of Responsibility legislation. Dangerous Goods storage and handling is an excellent training course for companies and individuals to learn what is required when dealing with Dangerous Goods in the workplace.

This course is designed for Personnel working with the storage and handling of dangerous goods.

Went in not doing any of the courses before and felt that I learnt what I needed to know and more. The trainer was great, answered everyone's questions with valid information. The course was delivered at a good pace.

The course was a fast pace, but very well delivered and one that I really enjoyed. I was so pleased I came away knowing more than when I arrived. Well done.

Trainer was well prepared and the venue was excellent for the subject with the resources and training aids readily accessible. I would recommend this trainer to any organisation for his professionalism. This coupled with his depth of knowledge and friendly mannerism demonstrates a true professional.

Very informative course with lots of great info. The trainer did extremely well conducting the course, he had a great understanding of the course content and was able to explain in real world situations and was a great help.

Delivered on site and delivered well. Good pace and good refresher sessions each day to go over previous content. The trainer was on time and well prepared.

— J.Murphy

This was my second DG course. The first was years ago at another training school. I found it all very confusing. This time after training at Nationwide, I have come away from the course feeling competent at correctly completing my job
when carting DG.

— M.Campbell

Not having much DG experience this course was ideal, gave me the confidence to make the right decisions. The traier was well organised, ready to hit the ground running on both days.

— B.Molloy

I had done the Dangerous Goods Bulk Drivers Licence course previously and I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of information I took away from this course. The trainers knowledge was second to none. He encouraged me to ask questions and his responses were delivered without hesitation and with accuracy. Great course and great training company.
