The course is based mostly on the text of ADR, each student must therefore have a copy of the Regulations to work from, either bringing their own 2009 volumes or by purchasing a set from Chemfreight at cost.

The course will end with a final examination consisting of case studies which involve establishing the detailed requirements for specific shipments in packages and tanks under ADR. The results will be relayed to students within 48 hours from the end of the course.

Each student will also receive a course booklet as a comprehensive guide to ADR.
