The Oxford Bunker Course 2024 • April

The Oxford Bunker Course is a world-renowned five-day intensive residential training course, designed for newcomers to the business and for those who may already have some experience.

The programme is led by Nigel Draffin (Course Director), backed by a dedicated team of highly respected experts, spanning every discipline within the international bunker industry. Together, the team ensures that every student leaves the course with a solid understanding and far greater knowledge of the bunker industry. The course has been developed over many years to give delegates a thorough grounding in all the elements of the bunker industry, to understand the needs of suppliers, sellers, buyers and users of bunkers, together with an insight of the changes and challenges of the next five to ten years.

The programme includes a range of high-quality lectures on the technical, operational, commercial, financial and legal aspects of bunkering, including case studies, discussion groups and practical demonstrations. All students receive comprehensive course documentation for later reference and ongoing training.

A full and exciting social programme - including a tour of Oxford and its University and a course dinner - makes this training course one of the best networking opportunities for newcomers. During the week, all students meet and work with the experts and have an extraordinary opportunity to build long-term relationships with their peers from all sectors of the business.
