THREE ONE-DAY SHIPPING & BUNKERING COURSES
These three distinct one-day training courses provide delegates a solid base from which to heighten their understanding of three different, but closely connected, sectors of the shipping industry.
- AN INTRODUCTION TO SHIPPING - Thursday 27 April
- This one-day course explains the basics of ships and the business of shipping and is suitable for new entrants to the maritime sector. It aims to educate and inform newcomers to shipping and those whose jobs require a basic grasp of how the industry works.
- AN INTRODUCTION TO BUNKER DISPUTES - Friday 28 April
- The course examines the types of bunker claims most prevalent in the industry and offers advice on how these claims might be assessed. It looks at bunker quality, bunker quantity and delays, three of the most common sources of disputes, and suggests practical procedures that can be implemented to reduce the chances of disputes arising.
- AN INTRODUCTION TO LNG BUNKERING - Friday 28 April
- This one-day training course is designed to bring delegates up to speed with the technical, operational, practical and safety-related aspects of using LNG as a source of fuel for ships. It also covers the commercial issues, including pricing scenarios.
All three courses are designed for new entrants to the maritime sector but are also well suited to non-specialists in shipping and bunkering.
