Forwarding personnel arranging shipments via air transportation should additionally complete the add-on module DG22u—Dangerous Goods: Function Specific: Air Forwarder, which addresses additional restrictions and requirements when shipping DG cargo by air. Forwarding personnel arranging shipments via ocean and inland waterway vessel transportation should additionally complete the add-on module DG23u—Dangerous Goods: Function Specific: Ocean Forwarder, which addresses additional issues related to vessel shipment.

Important: Employee certification training is not complete without additional modules addressing "general awareness", "general safety", "security awareness" and, when required, an employer's "hazmat security plan".
