Dangerous Goods by Ocean

IMDG Dangerous Goods Training

TDG offers IMDG dangerous goods training certificates for shipper, forwarder, carrier, and individual completion. We offer full-acceptance and commodity-specific certifications for the safe handling of dangerous goods transported by ocean vessels. These training courses will give employees a thorough understanding of the guidelines for dangerous goods transportation set by the International Maritime Dangerous Goods code. TDG’s IMDG dangerous goods training will give organizations and individuals the necessary qualifications to safely and proficiently handle dangerous goods. Coming soon, we will be introducing a core module, DG Masters (TM), that can be used for all of our modal programs. It will be about a six (6) hour program.

Our IMDG dangerous goods training certificate programs are flexible. Companies handling a wide range of hazmat products will benefit from our full-acceptance certification, and businesses in a product-specific industry can give their employees a comprehensive understanding of how to ship and handle a particular hazmat commodity.
