IMDG Code training is mandatory for all shore-side staff involved in dangerous goods transport by sea. Exis has developed a cost-effective training tool, in collaboration with the International Maritime Organization, which enables shore side staff such as shippers and forwarders, container packers and consolidators, shipping line operations and booking staff, port staff, cargo surveyors and executives/managers to receive high quality training that complies with the latest IMDG Code training requirements.

The following levels of training are available to meet this mandatory training requirement: multimodal general awareness, IMDG Code function specific, advanced and refresher.  

Courses are accessed over the internet with a pc, laptop or tablet device (iPad, Android or Windows).  We also offer SCORM content packages developed to the SCORM 1.2 standard for import into SCORM-compliant learning management systems.
