Technical superintendents are a vital point of contact for equipment suppliers and repair yards. They function as the link between vessel and shore, and play an important role in the purchasing of new parts and contracting repair activities. At the request of and in partnership with several yards, HME has established a training course focused entirely on technical superintendents. The six-day course consists of three modules of two days and will take place in the spring of 2014 in Vlaardingen.

The course has been specifically developed for junior superintendents, mechanics or maritime officers who wish to take the next step towards becoming a superintendent. It offers a unique opportunity to gain more insight into the role and position of technical superintendents. This will, in turn, ensure a more effective process for equipment suppliers and repair yards.

Three modules
Module 1 involves the relevant changes in international laws and regulations, the issues of damages and insurance, and the subject of docking and repairs.

Module 2 is fully focused on incidents.

Module 3 focuses on the financial side of maintenance management and the importance of communication.

The course is run by professionals who are or were active in the field on behalf of shipping companies, yards, insurance companies/brokers, inspection institutions and classification societies.
