Training resources for the Ag Retail Industry

Spring training is not just for baseball players, it's for ag retailers too! Get ready for a busy spring by registering your staff for the Anhydrous Ammonia: Retailer Safe Handling and TDG Certification course. This valuable training ensures employees who handle anhydrous ammonia are trained in its safe handling and certified to do so. 

Upon successful completion of the course, trainees will receive a TDG (Transportation of Dangerous Goods) certificate, valid for three years, confirming they are qualified to transport and handle anhydrous ammonia.  Read more to learn about CAAR's online and in-person training opportunities for this course. 

Anhydrous Ammonia: Retailer Safe Handling and TDG Certification covers all aspects of handling and safety in a retail or distribution centre setting. Topics include chemical properties and characteristics of anhydrous ammonia, site safety and security, transferring procedures and emergency response.

The course is offered online and through in-person training, based on demand. CAAR is able to provide retailers with tailored, on-site training at your company's location(s). CAAR requires at least 30 days notice to arrange on-site training.
