Certificate in Ship Repair Contracts

Providing vital knowledge for anyone involved in vessel repairs - training course by tutored distance learning

Commences: 18 May 2017

Ship repair is an integral part of a ship’s lifetime cycle.  Whether it is planned as a routine event a long time in advance or arranged on an “as required” basis to keep an ship operational, it is a process all ships will encounter.

This course is for anyone involved in negotiating, managing or delivering to a ship repair contract for commercial vessels, including large yachts.

 The key aim of the course is to equip you to manage more effective ship repairs by enabling you to:

  • evaluate existing processes
  • identify the individuals whose input is required in order to create success
  • identify the key requirements (commercial, technical, financial, legal and environmental) and propose measures in response
  • understand commonly used ship repair contract terms
  • import the requirements into the terms of a draft contract
  • negotiate and conclude the contract
  • manage the performance of a ship repair contract
  • avoid, manage, mitigate and resolve disputes

The six detailed course modules are conveniently accessed online for you to download and study in your own time, allowing you to gain essential ship repair contract management knowledge while you work, wherever you are.
