Wellbeing of Live Animals in Air Travel

Transporting live animals, whether they are personal pets, service animals, or creatures destined for scientific research or conservation, requires a delicate balance of care and responsibility. Long journeys by air are often the most viable option, but it's imperative that we ensure the wellbeing of these sentient beings during their travels. This is where the Live Animals Regulations eLearning course comes into play.

Why the Live Animals Regulations eLearning Course Matters

This is where the Live Animals Regulations eLearning course steps in as a key tool for ensuring the safety and wellbeing of animals in air travel. This online self-study eLearning course provides personnel with the knowledge and skills necessary to fulfill their responsibilities. Here are some of the key reasons why this training is necessary:

Humane Treatment: Animals can't communicate their needs and concerns like humans can. Therefore, it falls upon the humans responsible for their care during transportation to understand and address their welfare.

Compliance with Standards: The eLearning course educates personnel about international standards and regulations for the transportation of live animals, ensuring that every journey is conducted in a manner that follows to international guidelines.

Animal Stress Reduction: Properly trained staff can minimize the stress and anxiety that animals may experience during air travel. This not only ensures their physical wellbeing but also contributes to their mental health.

Safety for All: Adequate training reduces the risks associated with animal transport, not only for the animals themselves but also for the people handling them.

The Live Animals Regulations eLearning course is an important step towards ensuring that animals, no matter their purpose or destination, are treated with the care and respect they deserve throughout their journey.

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

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