Marine Insurance claims Training Initiative From Braemar

Thursday, August 25, 2011

Braemar (incorporating The Salvage Association) has announced dates for its latest Port and Shipyard Familiarisation Courses to be held at Falmouth.


The courses are part of the company’s ongoing commitment to assist its clients by providing background knowledge and understanding within the marine insurance claims market on aspects of ships, shipyards and their repair procedures. Taking place between 4th – 7th and 18th-– 21st October, the ever popular courses will deliver a practical insight into port operations, ships and ship repairs, and provide a bridge of knowledge between marine claims handling professionals and the ship repair and ship building sectors.
 

The courses are primarily focused on candidates from the marine insurance market who will be given expert guidance throughout the course by an experienced marine surveyor acting as mentor.
Reporting that the current quota of courses are filling up fast, Nigel Clark, Managing Director of Braemar (incorporating The Salvage Association), said: “We are delighted to continue to offer to this sector of the marine market a leading training programme which provides claims handling staff with a practical insight onto the technical aspects of marine surveying, casualty investigation and reporting techniques, together with a hands on guide to ship and ship repair operations.”
 

The course is designed to provide participants with the basic knowledge and background to assist them during their daily tasks of interpreting the terminology of surveyors’ technical reports when dealing with marine claims and insurance. Participants will be given the opportunity to visit ships and take part in workshops to discuss aspects of ships’ layouts, construction and operation to see at first hand how the ship repair industry works. A visit to sister company Braemar Howells, which specialises in pollution response, is included to provide details of the logistics involved in handling major pollution incidents.
