Introduction

This course provides required training to participants involved in shipping Dangerous Goods by International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG). BDG training is taught by recognized professionals whose emphasis is on simplicity, safety and compliance with the regulations. Avoid fines, penalties, shipment delays and embarrassment by completing your training as soon as possible.

Shippers and freight forwarders (brokers) of Dangerous Goods to be transported by vessel must comply with training requirements and regulatory guidelines of the IMDG Code, often as a condition for vessel carriers to accept shipments of Dangerous Goods and hazardous materials for ocean transport. BDG provides initial and recurrent training courses to meet these requirements.
