Our online DOT/IMDG course is designed for anyone involved with dangerous goods that are responsible for overall compliance with domestic and international (US DOT and IMO) hazmat/dangerous goods regulations. Training is designed to help meet the DOT requirements found in 49 CFR 172 (Subpart H) and IMO’s vessel hazmat training mandate in IMDG Code 1.3.1.
PART 1- DOT OBJECTIVES:
Meet the federal requirements of 49 CFR, Part 172.704 for certification in hazardous materials handling and transportation.

Identify function specific operations to which the employee will be expected to perform including proper marking and labeling of packages and containers, shipping papers, packaging, and other required duties.
PART 2- IMDG OBJECTIVES:
If you ship hazmat by vessel, your carrier may require your packages to meet international standards. IMDG training is required for all persons who transport dangerous goods according to IMDG Code 1.3. The IMDG training rules are recommended for shore-based personnel. However, vessel carriers often require compliance with them as a condition of accepting your shipments. These rules apply in addition to the US DOT/IMDG Hazardous Materials Regulations. The DOT also requires hazmat employees to be trained on all applicable modal rules. Failure to comply with the IMDG Code can result in civil penalties, rejected shipments, incidents in transit, and carrier blacklisting.
This dangerous goods vessel transportation portion of this course was developed for anyone that:
- – Have any involvement in shipping dangerous goods by vessel;
- – Classify dangerous goods;
- – Select proper shipping names;
- – Pack, mark, label or placard dangerous good packagings;
- – Load/unload Cargo Transport Units; and
- – Prepare or sign dangerous good shipping papers.
The IMDG Code is produced by the International Maritime Organization (IMO), an agency of the United Nations charged with maintaining the international rules for shipping dangerous goods by sea. The IMDG Code is based on the United Nations Committee of Experts recommendations. These are the official international rules for dangerous goods transportation by vessel. In order to do business with many vessel carriers, you must comply with the IMDG rules.
Upon successful completion of this IMDG course, participants will be compliant with the DOT Hazmat Reguklations found in 49 CFR 172 Subpart H and IMO’s vessel hazmat training mandate IMDG Code 1.3.1 and will have met one of the “function-specific” elements of the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) hazmat employee training (as this relates to 49 Code of Regulations §172.704).
