Have you checked out our new corporate responsibility training options yet? 

This fall, AIAG is offering three additional IMDS-specific courses. Click the links below for more information!

New to IMDS? We recommend our IMDS Basic Concepts and Application training—a course designed to get you working in IMDS as quickly as possible. Using both presentations and hands-on exercises, this course focuses on how to run the IMDS interface and enter data.

Want more? AIAG’s Advanced IMDS training course was created for those with a basic understanding of IMDS, including MDS creation, submission, and review for acceptance/rejection. This course provides an extension of the IMDS Basic Concepts and Application course, and will help you understand the regulations and how they might impact your business.

Already using IMDS, but want to get up to speed on changes in version 11? Our new IMDS V11.0 Update & Chemistry Manager training emphasizes these changes, with a specific focus on the new Chemistry Manager functions.
