IMDG Code training is required for all persons who transport dangerous goods according to chapter 1.3 of the IMO. The training is recommended for any shore-side personnel who are involved with dangerous goods in their job role.

  • Requirements:
  • Computer
  • Internet Access
  • IMDG Code access (provided as part of the course)

What are the three types of IMDG Code training?

Read more Read less
  • General Awareness- This will familiarise the staff with IMDG Code requirements.
  • Function-Specific Training- This is designed to help those with specific roles and responsibilities. Each one is outlined by the IMDG code.
  • Full In-Depth Course- This is an advanced level course that provides detailed content for all function-specific modules.

 

In January 2015; Amendment 37 became effective. By the beginning of 2016 it will become a mandatory part of your training. It offers a two-volume set that was developed to cover fires and spillage emergencies, but also focuses on:

 

  • Container Traffic
  • Packing
  • Segregation of Incompatible Substances
  • Stowage

 

Taking advantage of this training will allow companies to follow the IMDG Code more effectively. There will be tests at the end of each module in order to ensure that each student is competent. However, students can take these courses at their own pace, since there are no timeframes that are mandatory.
It’s an open-book course that allows students to reference the IMDG Code throughout the training.
You will find that our IMDG training provides increased operational flexibility and a reduced cost. You can contact AlertForce for a quote based upon your training requirements.

 

The sooner you get started the easier it will be for your staff to become more efficient. AlertForce can help them reach these plateaus and give you all the necessary services to become more successful when transporting dangerous goods by sea.

What is the latest version of IMDG Dangerous Goods Training?

Read more Read less
    In short version 38-16 is the current version. Amendment 39-18 comes into force on January 1, 2020 but will be available 12 months prior to that
    Background

From January 1, 2010, the IMDG Code Dangerous Goods training has been mandatory for all staff involved in dangerous goods transport by sea. On 1st January, 2012, Amendment 34 expired and Amendment 35 became the requirement. On January 1st, 2013 Amendment 36 came into being and that expired at the end of 2015. Amendment 37-14 took its place and lasted until the end of 2017. Amendment 38-16 is now the most current course and will be current up until Dec 31, 2019.

In Australia, this mandatory training is regulated by AMSA, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority. Companies failing to comply with these new DG regulations risk delays, rejected consignments, fines and/or a damaged reputation.

The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) enforces the training in Australia. If your company fails to adhere to these new rules then it could create delays, fines, or rejected consignments. Any of these can result in a damaged reputation.

The AlertForce IMDG Code dangerous goods training program is accepted by AMSA and delivers cost-effective compliance for all shore-side sectors including:

      • Shippers and freight forwarders
      • Container packers and consolidators
      • Shipping line operations and booking staff
      • Stevedores
      • Port staff
      • Cargo surveyors

Does the training authorise staff to fill out AMSA's multimodal dangerous goods forms (MO41)?

Read more Read less

In Australia transporting hazardous substances and dangerous goods is regulated by AMSA. Companies must monitor dangerous goods movements at all times via the correct documentation.

As such if you are a consignor who sends dangerous goods internationally you MUST ensure the dangerous goods transport documents are correctly filled out and accompany your freight. The IMDG Code training is what you need to enable staff to produce AMSA’s MO41 form.
