Course Details
This hazmat vessel shipper training builds on the employee's 49 CFR knowledge to cover the unique, additional requirements for shipping hazardous materials by vessel, in compliance with the latest edition of the International Maritime Organization's International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG Code).
