Ship Superintendents' Training Course @ Isle of Man University Centre | Isle of Man
It has, for some time, been apparent that there is currently a shortage of suitably qualified and experienced Ship Superintendents. In response to this, a successful training programme has been established over the last three years, based on the Isle of Man.

The training was originally designed for newly appointed Ship Superintendents, however over recent years it has evolved to provide an excellent foundation in all aspects of ship operations.  In recognition of this, the programme was included by Lloyds List London as one of the best training programmes of its kind.

In today’s working environment, the ability to demonstrate a recognised level of training can be invaluable. This quality-assured course is primarily designed for recently appointed ship superintendents or aspiring entrants into the world of ship management or ship ownership – whether working for a ship owner or ship management company; or whether applying from a Deck, Engineering or Naval Architecture background. More experienced superintendents can also be accommodated. No prerequisite qualifications are needed and there is no specific bias towards “wet” or “dry” vessels.

The topics covered by the course will include:

  • Different Roles and Responsibilities
  • Changes in Reporting Lines
  • Compliance Issues
  • Regulatory Requirements
  • Codes and Standards
  • Managing Safety
  • Emergency Response
  • Media Response
  • Budgeting and Cost Control
  • Repair Costs
  • Asset Management
  • Quality Assurance
  • Documentation Systems
  • Moving From Ship to Shore
  • Dry Docking
  • Business Charter Types
  • Damage Surveys
  • Pre-Purchase Surveys
  • International Organisations and Conventions
  • Insurance and Claims Handling
  • Ship Registration
  • Environmental Issues
  • Key Performance Indicators
  • Cyber Security

This intensive course lasts 9 consecutive days. A sample timetable is can be viewed here.

The course has been approved by IMAREST (the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology) and DNV-GL (Det Norske Veritas) and was first delivered in 2006. The course is managed by EMCS International Limited (also based on the Isle of Man). The course will run at the Isle of Man University Centre which is within easy walking distance from the centre of Douglas.
