New Live Animals Regulations eLearning course

There are many reasons why people transport live animals. The animals may be personal pets, assistance dogs, sporting animals, animals for breeding, zoological animals and species being transported for reasons of science, etc.


When transporting animals, especially for long journeys, air transportation is often the only option. In order to treat animals humanely and meet handling standards, personnel involved in the transport of live animals need to be trained to fulfil their responsibilities.

The personnel include, to name a few, ground handling staff (passenger, ramp and cargo handling staff), pilots, cabin crew, animal attendants and forwarding agents.


We at Airport College International have created this online eLearning course to improve all personnel’s understanding of the proper handling and air transportation of live animals.

The course content fully complies with the guidelines of IATA Live Animals Regulations (LAR) 2021, Edition 47.
