2019/2020 IMDG "Initial" Compliance Training for Shore-Based Personnel

Who should complete this course?

This course is for you if you are shore-based and your work involves preparing or handling dangerous goods intended for sea transport.

What do you require?

You will need the latest version of the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code). Please contact us if you would like us to set you up with the loan of one. These are available for you to use for a maximum of 3 weeks.

What’s in this course?  

After completing this training, you will have an understanding of the legal requirements and operational restrictions that apply to shipments of dangerous goods intended for sea transport. You will gain the knowledge to be able to identify, handle and process consignments according to national and international regulations.

Skills learnt will include classification, identification, packing, marking, labelling and documentation of dangerous goods consignments.

The course content is based on the current edition of the IMDG Code. Your training will enable you to interpret the contents of this publication and apply its principles to safely prepare dangerous goods for sea transport.

How is the course delivered?

This course is intended to be fully self-paced, enabling you to complete it at your own pace and in your own time. However, full interaction is available with our fully-qualified instructor. Details will be given to you after your registration process has been completed.

Most modules include sound, so a set of headphones or speakers is essential. If you intend to interact with our trainer, you may be required to login to a live session. In this situation, a microphone is also required.

The training should take around 12 to 16 hours to complete.

If, after attempting this course, you believe that you will benefit more from live training, you will be able to make a booking on to one of our scheduled face-to-face classroom courses without having to pay for another course.

Our price includes GST.

What you will receive at the end of your training

Upon successful completion of this course, including assessment questions, you will be able to download an accreditation accepted by AMSA. Your certificate will qualify you to prepare and accept dangerous goods consignments intended to be transported by sea transport. Your qualification will remain current until 31 December 2021. Before the expiry of this time, you will be required to complete refresher training. This can be done by way of another self-paced online course, any time during 2021, that should take around 6 to 8 hours to complete.
