Virtual Classroom - MPI Accredited Person Training

 ​​​​Our new virtual classroom training is an interactive course with one of our trainers in real-time. You are able to ask our trainers questions, have discussions with your fellow classmates and interact just as you would in a standard classroom course, all from the comfort of your own home.

You must have a computer or laptop with a web cam and speakers or headphones to be able to log on and complete this course. You must also have access to Zoom as this is a Zoom course.

  • 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.

​​​Please Note: If you are completing this course for the first time you must complete our Online Biosecurity Awareness training prior to completing this course, however you are able to register for both courses at the same time.
