The three-day course is primarily aimed at project managers, future (marine) warranty surveyors, non-maritime engineers and professionals operational in the insurance sector.
The main topics will include an introduction within the world of Marine Warranty Surveying followed by topics about naval engineering, hull strength and ship stability. The course will focus on DNV-GL regulations for mitigating risks prevalent in the complex maritime and offshore businesses.
