TDG, Self-Teach, and Training Material

TDG Self-Teach® Book



The most recognized Self-Teach TDG course in Canada.

Safety training built by safety experts.

Danatec’s award-winning, industry-recognized TDG Self-Teach® Training program is for initial or re-certification training. Our continually updated, current TDG course meets all of Transport Canada’s training requirements under the TDG Regulations, for all persons involved in the Transportation of Dangerous Goods by ground.

Our course is ideal for shippers, receivers, and drivers. Written in simple language, the exercises, examples, and practical workplace exercises in Danatec’s TDG Self-Teach® training manual will engage the adult learner and make for an interesting and educational learning experience. Our courses focus on elements that ensure the information is understood, retained, and easily resourced.

Each package includes training materials for one person: a Self-Teach manual, a final exam that the employer marks, a class guide, placarding guide, practical workplace exercises for site specific training, and a certificate. TDG certification is valid for 3 years upon completion and is non-transferable.

This training is meant to be used as independent study and allows students to go at their own pace. It works well in small or large groups and provides room for discussion and site-specific training. This award-winning program is used by Canada’s largest and most recognized companies.
