Essex Chambers of Commerce, 34a Star Lane, Great Wakering, Essex SS3 0FF

Tuesday 2nd June 2020 - Wednesday 3rd June 2020
9:00am - 5:00pm

This 2-day course is aimed for students who have not attended any previous training on Dangerous Goods by Ocean, or for those who feel that they need to upgrade their knowledge on the topic.

A level of Dangerous Goods knowledge is required in order to attend this course and it is recommended that you have access to the Sea IMDG Regulations

We recommend that all students refresh their knowledge every two years to be in line with the current IMDG regulations.
The IMDG details the functional training requirements for all staff who handle or process dangerous goods shipments. Our training covers all job roles from shippers, freight forwarder through to ocean carriers.

By the end of the course learners will be able to confidently use the regulations to:

  • Correctly prepare a consignment of dangerous goods for ocean transportation
  • Validate whether a consignment has been correctly prepared for sea transportation
  • Adhere to practices and standards regarding the preparation and handling of goods for ocean transportation.

Our training encourages participation and we like to ensure that the course is relevant, interesting and engaging.
