BIMCO Offers MasterClass Workshop

Thursday, March 04, 2004
Delivered in co-operation with the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law University of Wales Swansea, UK.

This is the seventh of a series of innovative BIMCO Courses focusing on key aspects of maritime commerce. The workshops are designed for participants who already have some shipping experience and who wish to broaden their knowledge of the industry.

Each workshop in the series consists of two or three full days of presentations by industry experts, combined with group discussions and case studies.

Participants are expected and will be encouraged to contribute actively to the group discussions. At the end of each workshop, participants may take a short "open book" exam to assess their level of understanding of the subject matter. This assessment leading to the award of a BIMCO diploma will be of value to employers and employees alike in demonstrating the effectiveness of the training and knowledge attained.
