This course provides an in-depth look at the regulations governing shipments by sea and air under IMO (International Maritime Organization) and IATA (International Air Transport Association) regulations. It focuses on the differences between domestic and international regulations and covers any regulatory changes or additions that have occurred in the past two years.
During this class you will participate in hands-on exercises that will give you the opportunity to practice preparing goods for shipment using the IMDG (International Maritime Dangerous Goods) Code and IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. These practical exercises demonstrate how to classify a material as a dangerous good; how to interpret information from the dangerous goods lists; packaging, marking, and labeling; and shipping paper requirements for shipping dangerous goods internationally.
IATA requires initial training and recurrent training every two years. Per competent authority reference, IMO requires initial training and recurrent training every three years in the U.S. This course meets both initial and recurrent training requirements.
