Online Spanish Dangerous Goods Transport General Awareness course now available, 1 July 2020
Poor understanding of IMDG Code provisions has resulted in
countless incidents at sea and ashore. Incorrect documentation,
packaging, segregation, stowage within the container and on board
ship and many other common errors put lives, property and the
environment at risk. IMO and national administration surveys
consistently show that high percentages of dangerous goods
container shipments are non-compliant.
IMDG Code training is mandatory for all shore-side staff
involved in dangerous goods transport. Staff directly involved in
dangerous goods operations must have function specific training,
while general awareness training is required for those who,
although not having a hands on role, require a familiarisation with
the IMDG Code provisions. Exis Technologies developed IMDG Code
e-learning in collaboration with the International Maritime Organization
which has been implemented by 6 of the top 10 shipping lines,
shippers and transport operations worldwide.
The Dangerous Goods Transport General Awareness course is for
personnel who need a familiarisation with dangerous goods transport
regulations and an awareness of the duties that arise from

Transport General Awareness course. It fully meets the 'awareness
training' requirements in 126.96.36.199.1 of the IMDG Code (Amdt 39-18),
188.8.131.52 of the ADR Agreement and RID Regulations and also
highlights requirements in the air transport regulations and the 49
CFR domestic dangerous goods regulations.
It is ideal for warehouse personnel, clerical workers,
administrators, managers, customer service and/or sales personnel
and others who have a very limited direct involvement in dangerous
goods shipping or transport activities but need a general
appreciation of the regulations. All course content is online
and there is a course completion certificate.
