Personnel who prepare hazmat vessel shipments for transport must comply with the International Maritime Organization’s IMDG Code in addition to select US DOT regulations (49 CFR). Noncompliance with these complex regulations can result in rejected shipments; costly delays; fines as high as $79,976 per day, per violation; and injury to personnel.
This online course is designed to help satisfy the IMO’s training requirement (IMDG 1.3.1) and provide DOT function-specific training for shore-side personnel who package, mark, label, or document vessels shipments. Registration includes an easy-to-download compliance notebook, along with Lion’s top-notch reference materials.
