Expanding on the acronym, this is transport technical supervision. Equipment that is used in long-distance transport falls under this. This could be equipment installed on trains or cranes at railway stations.

The course gives us the entitlement to fill and empty transport tanks with materials that are hazardous - hence the need for the course. In order to take the course, you must be at least 18 years old and have completed at least a vocational-technical education.

The course is divided into theoretical and practical parts. It ends with an examination, which we must pass. The entitlement is granted for 5 years.

Other options?

In addition to UNO operating skills, the TDT courses also offer us training:

  • Operation/maintenance in the area of wagon tipplers
  • Maintenance/servicing in the area of storage layouts
  • Operation/maintenance of a railcar pulling machine on the tracks
  • Carriage of hazardous materials
  • Transport of hazardous materials - escort
  • Unloading of tank and road tankers with hazardous material

There are quite a few courses related to transport technical supervision, everyone can find something that interests them. Training courses are useful insofar as without them we won't be able to get a job in this area because it is work that is defined as dangerous. The courses are the basis and only after that can you start applying for jobs.

Fortunately, there are a lot of them on the market and there are no problems with the number of places.
