Ship Handling Appreciation

About this course

This two day course is aimed at shore-based personnel involved in marine operations, perhaps in the shipping, legal or insurance industries, who have little seagoing or ship handling experience themselves.

The aim is to give delegates a full understanding of how ships behave and how the ship handler manoeuvres the vessel. The course also provides an insight into some of the problems that may be encountered when handling ships, creating a greater awareness of the tasks that their staff may be asked to perform.

Courses are scheduled on demand between March and November.
