Certificate in Ship Technology

The global shipping industry never stands still, and this is also true for technology. New technological demands with regards to ship safety, navigation, risk management and energy efficiency mean new requirements for increasingly skilled and technically-knowledgeable professionals to understand and carry out these demands. This course develops a detailed  understanding of ship technology and the role it plays in shipping.

Written by industry leading practitioners and delivered by online distance learning, the Certificate in Ship Technology will help you step up professionally in seven carefully-constructed study modules.

When: 20 May 2021
Where: Part-time Tutored Distance Learning
Duration: 14 weeks

Ideal for:
This course is ideal for shore and shipboard staff looking to understand the science and technology onboard the vessel and how it relates to their day-to-day roles. In particular, it is useful for crew members, ship superintendents, ship management and  purchasing staff.
In addition, junior or new entrants to the shipping business who need to build their knowledge of shipboard technology will find the course extremely beneficial as they look to build their future career, as will anyone looking to progress into marine engineering or marine maintenance roles, as this course gives a real underpinning to these job roles.
