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.

Tutored eLearning

These 10-week tutord courses focus on the subjects that BIMCO “knows best” using the organisation’s unrivalled expertise. Guided by hand-picked industry experts, we offer three case studies and online webinars to further help you to deepen your knowledge at your own pace. This learning experience goes above and beyond normal expectations.

Key benefits of our tutor-led eLearning are:

  • reduced travel costs and saves time
  • learn at your own pace with greater flexibility
  • highly interactive digital book, one of its kind in this area
  • fully tutored by hand-picked industry experts
  • small class with max. 30 participants
  • live interactions and case studies with key peers and tutors.

Flexible untutored eLearning

Offered at approximately 1/3 of the price, flexible eLearning offers ultimate flexibility while mirroring the content of our tutor-led courses. You will have the same digital material but without any tutorship. This is a much more affordable way for fast-moving shipping professionals to go to the next level of their specialist knowledge.
