Internationally renowned shipping and bunkering expert Nigel Draffin covers the essentials of shipping and bunkering in a comprehensive overview of these sectors, with particular emphasis on how they are mutually dependent.

This one-day course provides a comprehensive overview of shipping, from the types and sizes of ships sailing the world, their cargo, trade routes and the ports they visit. It looks at ships’ crew and the jobs they do, as well as technical, operational, and financial issues, including navigation and propulsion, safety and pollution, regulation, and control, earning money, and class and insurance. It also delves into the commercial, technical, and operational side of bunkering to simplify the often complex process of refuelling sea-going vessels. This course will also explain the jargon used in shipping and bunkering.
