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. IMDG Courses explain the structure of the Code and presents the topics in a logical order, without assuming prior knowledge. Animations and interactive content further help participants to understand and absorb the content of the course. The full content of each course is available for the student to access, directly, as often as required.
There is a test at the end of every module, with each score counting towards the end result and, on successful completion, an overall course certificate.

Amendment 40-20 (version 40 - 2020)
The IMDG Code is updated every two years to reflect revisions in the relevant UN Regulations, with a transition year during which both the current amendment and the new amendment can be used.
Amendment 40-20 was introduced on 1 January 2021. The period of coverage of Amendment 39-18 was extended from 31 December 2021 to 1 June 2022, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since 1 June 2022 only Amendment 40-20 is valid.
All IMDG Code courses are based on Amendment 40-20.
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has published the "IMDG Code Amendment 40-20 Corrigenda May 2022", which can be downloaded here.

Have a practical day
Completing the e-learning course* and passing the test is enough for participants to comply with the IMDG Code training requirements.
As an additional option IMDG Courses offers a one-day classroom training (in combination with the e-learning course, in-company only, 8 participants or more). During this practical day, an experienced trainer will cover the full content of the course, look at selected topics in greater depth and answer questions related to situations and subjects specific to the organization.
The trainer will review the e-learning course results of all participants prior to the meeting, and be aware of possible areas that require extra attention.
This ensures maximum effectiveness for the training.
