Expand on your 49 CFR hazmat knowledge and learn the unique IMDG Code requirements you must know to offer dangerous goods for transport by vessel.
Effective training is critical to avoid rejected shipments, costly port delays, injury to passengers and personnel, and DOT penalties now up to $79,976 per day, per violation.
We recommend completing Hazmat Ground Shipper Certification (49 CFR)
training to learn the US regulations before you enroll in IATA DGR or IMDG Code training.
Both US DOT and the International Maritime Organization (IMO) require training for all hazmat employees. Training must be repeated at least once every three years.
