49CFR IMDG Recurrent Syllabus

The 2-Day Recurrent course is for Shippers who prepare dangerous goods shipments for ground and ocean transit using the 49CFR and IMDG regulations, and who have had 49CFR and IMDG training within the previous 3 years. Topics covered include a review of the 3-Day initial classes for 49CFR and IMDG, with an emphasis on updates and changes.
