- Want to know more about the requirements for shipping dangerous goods by sea, but the IMDG Code is complicated and difficult to navigate?
- The training courses on offer do not give you the flexibility to choose the training method that suits you best?
- Outsourcing dangerous goods packing, marking & labelling and documenting are an unexpected and unwanted cost?
- Getting your sea freight shipments and documentation rejected by the shipping line causing you to miss the scheduled sailing and having to wait for the next sailing to become available?
A copy of the current IMDG Code (Volume 1 & 2) is required for the training. If you do not have a copy, contact us, we have a limited number of copies available for loan. Dependent on availability we can send one out to you for the duration of the training (maximum of 2 weeks loan period).
We are not only a training provider. We live and breathe the packing and documenting of dangerous goods by sea on a day-to-day basis.
We draw from our extensive experience, we know the quirks of the industry, and we like to share them with you.
Our dangerous goods programs aim to keep it simple.
AMSA (the Australian Maritime Safety Authority) does not accredited training programs any longer, however our training packages are compliant with the Australian Regulations as well as the requirements of the IMDG Code.
We design and deliver the dangerous goods by sea courses to meet the required training topics for shore-based personnel for a wide range of industries and employee roles. It is not always a one-size-fits-most.
We offer various training methods; classroom courses, online courses, hybrid courses (online & classroom) and bespoke courses.
Find the one that suits your needs, or get in touch and we will assist you with finding the best option for you.
The online training courses suit all shore-based parties involved with the transport of dangerous goods via sea; shippers, packers and freight forwarders.
The online courses are self-paced from the convenience of your pc, laptop or tablet. The learner will use the online training program to progress through the theoretical part of ‘how to apply the IMDG code for dangerous goods by sea’.
Some units require exercises to be submitted to our trainers for review, and where wishful, the trainer will schedule in a 30 minute one-on-one virtual meeting with the learner to discuss the exercises and prepare the learner for the final assessment.
Our bespoke training programs covers the courses mentioned under the previous section ‘Dangerous Goods Course – Online’.
The bespoke course program is developed to accomodate the learner’s involvement with a particular class, or a particular group of classes of dangerous goods.
If for instance you only handle class 3 Flammable Liquids then we will model the course to that particular class.
Besides for individual learners, the bespoke training courses are a popular dedicated training program for organisations to train their employees specifically for the dangerous goods handled at the organisation.
The bespoke courses are available as online, hybrid (Brisbane) and hybrid (webinar) options.
