Introduction
 
The International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code, 2008 Edition (incorporating Amendment 34-08) will come into force on January 1, 2010, and be valid for two years.

One of the amendments in the Code relates to the training for shore-side staff involved with dangerous goods. This training is now mandatory instead of recommended, and may be audited by the competent authority. Persons not yet trained may only operate under the direct supervision of a trained person.

Shore-side staff also includes offshore based personnel such as roustabouts, crane operators, materials co-ordinators and other persons involved in:

  • packing of dangerous goods;
  • marking and labelling of packages, containers and tanks;
  • packing of containers;
  • unloading and loading of vessels; and
  • the preparation of dangerous goods documents.

In addition to the existing Internet based training “Dangerous Goods by Air – Offshore Helicopter Operations“, SCS Training & Consultancy developed an Internet based E-learning for the transport of dangerous goods on offshore support vessels. This training complies with Part 1, Chapter 1.3 of the IMDG code.

Course Objective
 
The objective of this course is to train relevant staff in the understanding and application of the provisions of the IMDG code, so they are able to safely and efficiently perform their role in the transport of dangerous goods by sea on Offshore Support Vessels.

Course contents
 
As required by the IMDG code, the training program addresses the following categories:

  • General awareness training;
  • Function specific training (e.g. loading and placarding of containers); and
  • Safety training.

Course program
 
The training comprises 14 modules, covering the following subjects:

Tests
 
Each module is completed with a test, which contains multiple choices, true or false, drag and drop or other type of questions. The test score for the modules which are a mandatory requirement is saved in the students test result bank. Wrongly answered questions may be repeated, but will not be taken into account for the test result. If the test result for a particular module is not sufficient, the module will be repeated and a new test will be issued. In this case, the result for the second test will be taken into account for the total test result.

Certification
 
Upon completing the course and obtaining a positive overall test result, a certificate will be issued and send by e-mail to the training administrator of the company. This certificate has a validity of 2 years.
