IICL Online Dry Van Training Course & Preparatory Assistant for the Dry Van Container Inspector Certification Examination

The training module was developed to assist persons interested in widening the knowledge about container inspections and repairs.

It also assists as preparation assistant to those planning to take the IICL inspector certificate exam. The course addresses and highlights important topics that inspectors, repair workers and personnel involved with maintenance and repair of containers should be aware of.
