Course programme

Why choose to participate?

The issue of marine insurance is covered broadly in several other BIMCO masterclasses in relation to the special topics discussed. The purpose of this masterclass is to provide the participants with a practical understanding of the types of insurance cover available and how they interrelate and connect with the commercial process. The course will look at insurance from both shipowner and cargo owner perspectives and how the contractual relationships are influenced by the decisions and preferences of the insurance buyer and seller. 

How will this course help your professional development?


Course certification

Participants will be given an option of taking a final assessment (1-hour open-book test) at the end of the course, and Certificate of Achievement will be issued with a grade (distinction, merit or pass). Those not taking the assessment will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

Course materials

BIMCO issues electronic course files as an Adobe PDF file enabling you to make personal notes. All documentation and presentations will be in English. Course access details will be provided once the registration is completed.
