Certificate in Marine Claims

The essential course exploring the principles and practices of marine claims by distance learning

Commences: 7th June 2017

Delivered by tutored distance learning

This essential Certificate in Marine Claims course covers the wide range of legal, technical and managerial aspects of claims and disputes. Practical guidance accompanies the broader perspective of maritime commerce equipping you with the information required to prevent problems escalating into potential disasters.

This short distance learning course is written by a team of experienced lawyers and other practitioners. Participants who successfully complete the course and the online assessments are awarded a certificate by Lloyd's Maritime Academy as a permanent record of their achievement and for CPD purposes.

From the straightforward to the incredible - the world of marine claims is as varied as the ships that sail the oceans, the cargoes they carry and, above all, the people who crew them.

If you are new to the business, on completing this course you will have gained a thorough understanding of the wide realm that is maritime claims. If you are already a specialist in certain areas, you will fill in the gaps and broaden your knowledge of the industry as a whole by the end of the course.
