Dangerous Goods by Air Awareness Training

Industry expertise delivered by the helideck professionals:

  • A training course written, developed and offered by HCA
  • Satisfies the pre-requisite training for OPITO HOIT
  • Relevant for anyone involved in helicopter operations, whether offshore or onshore

At Helideck Certification Agency, we’ve been approving eLearning ‘Dangerous Goods By Air Awareness’ courses for training providers for many years. As experienced helideck experts with a wealth of industry knowledge, our seal of approval is highly respected. We’ve now created our very own Dangerous Goods Awareness eLearning course, meticulously crafted for comprehensive training of helideck crew such as HLO officers, HDA Helideck Assistants, and other personnel engaged in helicopter operations, onshore and offshore.

Our Dangerous Goods By Air Awareness course has been developed in line with key regulations including IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations, ICAO guidance and CAA CAP393.
With an unparalleled depth of practical experience in offshore helicopter operations, we have an exceptional level of practical experience. This has enabled us to design a superior standard of eLearning course that’s based around the daily operations we witness in the North Sea and beyond.

Safety Comes First

We’re passionate about helideck safety and understand the importance of having highly trained staff who are well-versed in the area of dangerous goods regulations. One of the core aims when creating the training programme was to try and improve the levels of safety for helideck operatives by instilling a high standard of understanding among all members of staff, whether you’re an HLO officer, an HDA, an HSE or part of the offshore HLO team, our training ensures that every member is equipped with the knowledge and skills essential for maintaining helideck safety standards.

Our course satisfies the pre-requisite requirement for OPITO Helideck Operations Initial Training (HOIT) standard. This HCA Dangerous Goods by Air Awareness certification is suitable for staff of all levels who may handle, store, load or transport dangerous goods, including those who may not carry out these tasks but still require awareness due to the nature of their job.
