Currently, the IMDG Code doesn’t have a standard recertification schedule, meaning how long an IMDG certification is good for may depend on additional factors. For example, HAZMAT employees on foreign and domestic vessels who operate in navigable waters of the U.S. need to follow the retraining requirements set forth in 49 CFR Part 176, Section 13, which is every three years.
IMDG certification gives you the ability to ship hazardous goods internationally by ocean using any carrier. However, this certification only lasts three years. If you plan to continue shipping dangerous goods, you need to make sure your certification remains active by taking and passing a renewal course. Our online IMDG training serves as a first-time training course and as a re-certification course, making it convenient for new and veteran Hazmat workers alike.
