Exis Technologies to launch a new range of e-learning courses for IMDG Code 37-14

News November 26 / 2014    12:00 am

IMDG Code training has been mandatory since January 2010 for all shore side staff involved in dangerous goods transport by sea, including shipping line booking staff, container packers, consolidators, shippers, forwarders and stevedores.  Exis Technologies developed IMDG Code e-learning to meet the training requirements in Chapter 1.3 of the IMDG Code.  The online IMDG Code training courses have been implemented by 11 of the top 20 container lines, and have trained thousands of staff worldwide in the sea transport chain.

Exis is now launching an updated range of training courses to provide more focussed and streamlined course offerings. There is also a new multimodal awareness course focussing on the requirements in the IMDG Code, ADR, RID and IATA regulations.

The new courses, which will be phased in during December 2014 and January 2015, will have increased emphasis on graphics and interaction to convey key messages, enhancing the learning experience for students and reducing overall study time.

The new courses are:

Dangerous Goods General Awareness This course is for staff that need a familiarisation with dangerous goods transport regulations and an awareness of the duties that arise from them. It provides awareness training for the IMDG Code, ADR Regulations, RID Regulations and the IATA Regulations.
