  • You can learn how to identify, classify, package, mark, label and complete documentation for your dangerous goods at a FedEx Express dangerous goods seminar. Our 3-day public seminars, 1-day recurrent seminars (nonradioactive) and private, on-site seminars are now endorsed by IATA. Register for a FedEx Express dangerous goods seminar.
