What is involved in the ADR Courses?

ADR training, also known as the training for the transportation of dangerous goods by road, plays a crucial role in ensuring that drivers are adequately trained and well-informed about the specific regulations and safety measures involved.

DriverLink Training, like other reputable ADR training providers, offers a range of modules to cater to different needs and requirements.

Core Module

The core module serves as the foundation of ADR training, covering essential aspects such as the general regulations, documentation procedures, and crucial safety measures. It provides drivers with a solid understanding of the fundamentals of transporting dangerous goods.

Packages and Bulk Module

This module is specifically designed for companies involved in the transportation of dangerous goods in both packages and bulk. It focuses on the specific requirements and best practices for handling different types of packaging and bulk containers, ensuring the safe transportation of goods in various forms.

Classes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 9

ADR training includes separate modules for each class of dangerous goods as defined by the regulations.

These modules delve into the specificities of each class, providing drivers with in-depth knowledge and understanding of the hazards associated with different types of materials.

For instance, drivers will learn about the safe handling of gases (Class 2), flammable liquids (Class 3), flammable solids (Class 4), oxidising substances (Class 5), toxic substances (Class 6), corrosive substances (Class 8), and miscellaneous dangerous goods (Class 9).

Tankers Module

Specifically tailored for drivers involved in the transportation of dangerous goods in tanker vehicles, this module focuses on the unique challenges associated with handling goods in tankers.

It covers specialised knowledge and skills required for the safe loading, unloading, and transportation of hazardous materials in tankers.

It’s important to note that the selection of modules depends on the nature of the goods being transported and the specific requirements of each company.

For example, tanker companies might prioritise modules specifically tailored for the transportation of liquids, while others may opt for a broader range of modules to cover various types of dangerous goods.

By providing training, ADR training equips drivers with the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure the safe transportation of dangerous goods, reducing potential risks and promoting responsible practices in the industry.
