The first module provides an introduction to the core elements of classification and statutory surveys, including an introduction to among others, the IMO and the IACS.
This module describes the background, history and development of the classification society, and its role in modern shipping and what this means for the surveyor.
The third module explores the background, history and development of the various statutory bodies, such as Flag States, Port States, and Coastal States and their regulatory role in surveys.
This module describes and explains the role of classifying different types of vessels, such as new construction vessels; existing vessels not previously classed; and existing vessels not classed but which have been in the past. It also describes the procedures involved in class suspension, class withdrawal, and class reinstatement.
The penultimate module explores in greater detail the different types of classification survey (Annual, Intermediate, Renewal and others) and how to prepare for their requirements in an effective manner.
The final module describes the statutory surveys in more detail and what these involve. It also pinpoints what requirements are needed and how to prepare successfully for them.
