IMDG Shipping by Ocean Vessel

Eduwhere prides itself on our range of high quality training courses, and we are excited to announce our newest addition: IMDG online, on-demand training! IMDG – International Maritime Dangerous Goods Shipping is a training certification course that covers the fundamentals of shipping dangerous goods by ocean vessel, in accordance with international IMDG regulations. If you or your company ships dangerous goods by sea, this online training course may be appropriate. 

It is important that anyone involved in the transporting, loading, or preparing of packages for shipment by vessel should be trained according to the requirements set out in Section 1.3 of the IMDG Regulations and 49 CFR 172 Subpart H. Trainees will receive an introduction to the regulations and general awareness training for hazardous goods. They will also learn necessary skills for shipping hazardous goods, including how to identify and select proper shipping names, packing groups, basic descriptions, appropriate packaging, quantity limitations and exceptions, and required marks and labels, as well as how to complete and sign necessary documentation and ensure appropriate safety and emergency response. The training also reviews security awareness requirements. The focus of this course is on the preparation and shipment of non-bulk packages, intermediate bulk containers and large packagings. 

Eduwhere’s course is based on the most recent 2018 Edition of the IMDG Code (Amendment 39-18). The training is designed with a 10-step approach that encompasses all of the activities which must be addressed when preparing dangerous goods for shipment by water. This 10-step approach is designed to help you follow through on important regulatory requirements on dangerous goods shipments, and help ensure that you stay in compliance with the law. 

Container cargo ships loaded with shipments. Personnel shipping hazardous materials by ocean vessel must receive IMDG training.
