International shipbroker and consultant Galbraith's has embarked upon a fourth decade of shipping education by confirming arrangements for the 31st Galbraith's Shipping Course, to be held in the U.K. from July 26 to August 9. The Galbraith's Shipping Course, now in its 31st year, is one of the best-known and most respected events on the international shipping calendar. A number of established course directors, with many years' experience in shipping and maritime education at a senior level, take delegates through a wide range of subjects, including shipbroking, maritime law and arbitration, ship finance, crisis management, and maritime fraud. Practical workshops and case studies are interwoven with discussions and debates to produce a comprehensive course providing access to a level of shipping experience and education which is widely recognised throughout the industry for its excellence. Philip Rogers, head of research at Galbraith's, says, "Education has always had an important role to play in shipping, and that has never been truer than it is today. The Galbraith's course has earned a reputation for excellence, and we are committed to maintaining that."
