The Inland Marine Terminal Operator course is a 2-day, 16-hour program geared towards inland port operations personnel. Our IMTO program covers the basics of port and terminal operations, management, and how terminals interface with the international freight transportation system. It is a perfect primer for operations personnel with less than three years experience in the industry and a valuable refresher for operations personnel of any experience level.

This program reinforces the basics of port and terminal operations and management, as well as explores each of the departments that comprise a terminal. The initial segments of the course are focused on big-picture logistic topics that are relevant to on the ground activities. During these segments, attendees will explore the fundamental concepts behind the global transportation industry, review the advantages and disadvantages of major modes of transportation, receive an update on the current state of the industry, become familiar with the common terms and vocabulary of the industry, and review the basic organizational and management structure of ports.

All participants in the program will receive a professional certification as an Inland Marine Terminal Operator (IMTO) as well as a complimentary membership to the association. This membership grants access to the IAMPE’s electronic library, the IAMPE’s network of port professionals, and ongoing support from the association’s faculty regarding any of the topics covered during the course. All programs are reviewed for content and approved by the IAMPE Board of Advisors for certification.
