Elaine Pelisson, Director Human Resources at Samskip, commented, “We have been purchasing IMDG Code e-learning courses for general awareness training since 2010. We are a large company with employees located globally. The e-learning approach enables us to train large numbers of staff in different geographic locations to the same standard at the same time. It is easy to set up additional courses if required, and retrain staff for each new Amendment.”
IMDG Code e-learning is a cost-effective online training tool for all shore side staff involved in the handling and transport of dangerous goods by sea. It was developed in collaboration with the International Maritime Organization, and gives high quality training that complies with both the general awareness and function specific training requirements in the IMDG Code.
