Ways to train

Face-to-face learning

BIMCO offers face-to-face training in a number of locations around the world, in various formats and across a wide range of topics.

Masterclasses
Three-day courses designed for those who have foundational knowledge but need a short and intensive refresher or further in-depth knowledge to become experts in a specific area.

BIMCO standard contract seminars
A series of contract-related seminars aimed at owners, charterers, brokers, lawyers and P&I club staff who work with BIMCO standard contracts in their daily business. The 1-2 day seminars provide participants with a better understanding of the terms and conditions used in BIMCO forms.

Customised training
Usually 2-3 days on-site training can be customised to a specific or range of topics to meet your organisation’s needs.

What our participants say

The course helped me to improve my knowledge of laytime and demurrage and gave answers to the cases I face in my work every day. It is perfectly designed to provide all necessary information about laytime and demurrage, including interesting case studies, webinars, samples and deep explanations.
