Nitrate film is classified as a hazardous material and thus has strict packing and shipping regulations. Certification must be renewed every two years. This half-day workshop will provide attendees with all the relevant regulatory information to be able to pack and ship nitrate film. Here is a chance to train new employees or to renew your existing DG/hazmat training without incurring the cost of a personal training session. Sponsored by George Blood LP, the class is exclusively about Nitrocellulose film shipping. This half-day, UN1324 workshop, is open to any level of expertise.

Robert Smith of CARGOpak will lead the formal regulatory training interspersed with tips and tricks provided by chair of AMIA’s Nitrate Committee, Rachel Del Gaudio. After the instruction, there will be hands-on training before the workshop concludes with an open-book test.

The in-person workshop is being hosted at George Blood LP at 502 West Office Center Drive, Fort Washington, PA 19034 (about 45 minutes north of Philadelphia International Airport). As packing and shipping is a hands-on activity, we recommend that attendees within driving distance join us for the workshop.

The virtual workshop will be a monitored streaming session of the in-person workshop. Attendees will learn the same information and receive the same certification. A certificate will be issued to each registrant who passes the test.

Registration deadline is February 13, 2023 at 12:00pm (Eastern).
