The first module provides an introduction to the core elements of the marine surveying industry and covers topics such as the role of the marine surveyor, the need for marine surveys, and the development of the marine surveying industry.
This module describes the role of the regulatory bodies and how they relate to the surveying industry. It explores in detail the role of the IMO; Flag States; Port States; accident investigation bodies; class societies and many more.
The third module delves deeper into the responsibilities of the owners and surveyors in ensuring the quality of the vessel. The module also looks at the issue of transfer of responsibility, and interaction with second and even third parties.
This module describes and explains the role location plays in the survey: when is it appropriate for an onboard survey or a dry dock survey? It also examines the procedures involved in attending vessels in various states, for example at anchor, in port or at a oil/gas terminal.
This penultimate module looks at the different types of survey that are carried out (class surveys/statutory surveys/other surveys) and their requirements. It also looks at the issue of surveying a vessel in a damaged condition in more detail.
The final module describes and explores safety in surveys: what is safety in this context, who has responsibility for ensuring safety; and the methods used for ensuring safety, particularly when working at heights or over water.
