MPI Approved Accredited Person Training - Classroom Courses

New Zealand importers must operate an Approved Transitional Facility to receive, inspect and unpack imported sea containers. All Transitional Facilities must have trained and certified personnel who manage or undertake the different aspects of biosecurity. Applicants must have a current working visa if they are not a New Zealand citizen or resident.

MPI requires all facilities importing sea containers to have one or more Accredited Persons available. APs are responsible for inspecting containers, supervising their unpacking, containing any biosecurity threats found and reporting to MPI.

IVS provides the necessary training, or refresher training, for your staff to gain or maintain their accreditation in a convenient half day course.
