An ADR Training Certificate is required for any driver who operates a vehicle used for transporting dangerous goods by road throughout Ireland and the EU. The ADR / Hazardous Chemical Training Course covers the regulations and safety procedures relating to the carriage of dangerous goods by road in packages, IBCs, Bulk and Tanks.
