The price of each course is USD 50.00. It takes around 6-8 hours to complete.
The courses are divided into three sections:

The IMSBC Code itself can be purchased from NCB or Exis Technologies.
If you have any questions, or would like to purchase the IMSBC book to use with the courses please contact the National Cargo Bureau in New York or the Exis sales team in the UK
