August 21, 2019

Posted by Peter East

Lithium batteries are the dangerous goods subject of the moment. From watches, cameras, mobiles, laptops, e-cigarettes, bicycles, golf trolleys, cars to fork-lift trucks, they are in everything, and yet remain a challenge to transport. Complicated regulations are amended frequently, and the requirements for air, sea and road transport differ widely. As one of the first companies to develop a specialised Lithium Batteries by Air, Road & Sea course, we have now increased the frequency of our open courses to one or two per month. There are five available courses between September and December, so there is no need to wait months when you have some delegates who need to understand these complex regulations. All you have to do is click on this link which will take you to our schedule.
