American Club Expands E-Learning Offering

Posted by Eric Haun
Thursday, July 17, 2014

The American P&I Club has added to its library of e-learning modules released in cooperation with IDESS IT in the Philippines.

The new module covers compliance with The Code of Practice for the Safe Loading and Unloading of Bulk Carriers (BLU Code). The aim is to familiarize members and their crews with the code’s requirements for bulk carriers, terminal operators and other parties involved in the safe handling of solid bulk cargoes.

The module is the second in a series of bulk carrier safety training e-learning modules released by the club. The first, released in January this year, was a module on compliance with the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code. The remaining modules in this series, which will be released later this year and next, will address the International Code for the Safe Carriage of Grain in Bulk, the Code of Safe Practice for Ships Carrying Timber Deck Cargoes (TDC) Code, and regulations and experience-based best practices concerning the inspection and maintenance of bulk carriers.

The club has also issued updates to its “plug and play” hard drive system.
