    The majority of IMDG Code courses reflect the tone and language of the Code itself - officialese.IMDG-courses.com uses everyday English as much as possible, making the courses much more accessible and easier to follow.


    Also, the Code is a reference book. Our courses explain the structure of the Code and present the topics in a logical order, without assuming prior knowledge. Animations and interactive content further help participants to understand and absorb the content of each course.
