Global Interest In Manx Maritime Training

by Jason Gorringe,, London

18 October 2012

The Isle of Man has announced that its world-leading Ship Superintendents' Training Course attracted seventeen delegates hailing from Nigeria, France, Libya, the Philippines, Germany, Poland and the United Kingdom.

The course, offered by Isle of Man-based EMCS International Limited, is designed for marine superintendents and other maritime personnel and delivered by a team of professionals known to be the industry's best.

Although originally designed for newly appointed recruits to the position of superintendent and seagoing engineers and deck officers coming ashore, the training has evolved to provide a foundation in all aspects of maritime operations. Topics covered include dry docking, quality assurance, environmental issues, reporting for owners, insurance, commercial knowledge, legal issues, budgeting and cost controls, major damage workshops, safety management and ship registration.

Alex Downie, the Isle of Man Department of Economic Development’s Political Member with responsibility for shipping, commented: "The Ship Superintendents' Course run in the Isle of Man is unique in its content and delivery. It provides senior sea-going officers with all of the tools and knowledge required to move into a shore-based position looking after the day-to-day operation of a number of vessels. Using experts who are currently working in ship management and other experts working in the professional support industries, it provides the most up-to-date information, real-life experiences and practical exercises to deliver the course."

Dick Welsh, Director of the Isle of Man Ship Registry said: "In my experience no other course sustains the level of practical experience and knowledge-sharing which the Isle of Man course packs into a very intensive nine days. For the attendees, the experience does not end there. The lecturers provide contact details and are happy to provide assistance to delegates once the course has finished. The course has also been found to be very rewarding for current superintendents to refresh their knowledge or for other roles within ship management to gain knowledge."

The programme is accredited by DNV, one of the world's leading classification societies, and endorsed by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST), as well as the Nautical Institute and the Isle of Man Ship Registry. The programme offered is continually updated to encompass new legislation and codes of practice in the maritime domain to ensure the offering continues to lead the pack.
