Ways To Study

BIMCO provides a versatile mix of learning options giving you the opportunity to cover topics via eLearning, face-to-face training at one of BIMCO’s global shipping hubs or through customised training to meet your company’s specific needs.


Essentially, I liked everything about the course: the ability to set my own learning schedule, to watch the missed webinars, the case studies, the digital book, and to take the exam in my own time.
