The DGSA course is an intensive 5 day course intended to assist candidates pass the DGSA examinations.

For 2017 we are making an alteration to the DGSA course, which we believe will increase our already high pass rate even further.

We will now be running the DGSA training course two weeks prior to the exams. We will provide candidates with additional training materials and then run our own mock exams at a date near to the actual DGSA exams.

This will allow us to assess your mock exams and identify any areas which we may need to re-visit in order to further increase your chances of passing the exams.


Our course is written and delivered by experienced Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers who provide this service for several large companies.


Feedback has proved to us that candidates undertaking this course have found it to be much easier to understand than other courses, with a very good pass rate (currently 83%).


The courses are normally run the week prior to the exams.
