Marine Order 41, governed by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA), as well as chapter 1.3 of the IMDG Code, requires general awareness or familiarisation training and function-specific training for shore-based personnel. Our e-learning ‘Dangerous Goods by Sea – IMDG Code’ training program covers the various groups of shore-based personnel, shippers, packers, consolidators, freight forwarders, warehouse staff, and etcetera.
The training program takes the learner on the journey of how to interpret and apply the IMDG Code. After successful completion of the program, the learner will be issued with a certificate of competency that allows the learner to handle, pack, mark & label, and document, as well as pack containers for dangerous for transport by sea.
A copy of the current IMDG Code is required to participate with the training. The IMDG Code is needed to progress through unit knowledge checks as well as for the final assessment.
Duration: average duration of the ‘Dangerous Goods by Sea – IMDG Code’ is approximately between 18 and 20 hours; for keeping momentum, it is advisable to have a maximum of 2 weeks to go through the training. The login has a 3 week expiry, if you require an extension, please contact us through the Learning Management System.
The self-paced online training programs are designed to be interactive. The monitoring process in place gives us a better understanding of the learner’s potential and limitations. Learners benefit from fast feedback, this enables them to see where they can improve, and it enables us to see where we can assist the learner.
