DGM is approved by the required authorities (IATA and CAA) to provide training to our clients. We offer both the five day initial course and recurrent three day training for those needing to renew current certification. Our approval by IATA and CAA, and yearly auditing by IATA, ensures our clients are receiving the best possible training for what can be a very complex area of freight movement.

The role of an Accredited Person is an important one to New Zealand. New Zealand is an isolated country and with the increase of global trade this places pressure on our biosecurity systems, especially those involved in devanning containers. An Accredited Person plays a key role ensuring that exotic pests do not become established in our country. Anything out of the ordinary for a sea container is to be reported to MPI:
- Live organisms – Call 0800 809 966
- Fungus or contamination or wood packaging
- Other biosecurity contamination to be swept and placed in a quarantine bin (check your training material)
- Non-ISPM 15 wood packaging material
- Other restricted packaging materials e.g. straw or used tyres
No one knows this side of the industry better than Dangerous Goods Compliance (DGC). Our company sparked a relationship with DGC back in 2009 and we can therefore offer both the HSWA Workplace Chemical Handling Training Basic and Comprehensive courses on account to our clients. There’s no difference in course prices, just the ease of having one place and one contact to arrange all your training requirements. We will manage your booking administration for you and DGC will facilitate the course on the day. DGC have Approved Test Certifiers, NZQA and LTSA trainers.
