The courses are particularly suitable for those studying for exams or who wish to further develop their knowledge and understanding of the various aspects of marine insurance: marine hull, marine cargo, liability, and protection and indemnity (P&I), how they inter-relate, and how the shipping world operates. The courses are designed to be beneficial to those in the vessel operating, shipping, logistics, terminal operating, banking and legal industries, just as much as to those in the insurance industry.

The courses have gained a reputation for excellence by combining formal but highly interactive and thought-provoking lectures, videos, discussions, and case studies on all the major aspects of marine insurance, maritime operations, vessel types, and current marine industry issues.

Subjects include the following:

  • The unique legal and practical aspects of marine insurance.
  • Cargo types and insurance issues for each.
  • Marine cargo insurance.
  • Marine war and strikes insurance, along with piracy and related perils.
  • Major cargo vessel types and the insurance issues for each.
  • Marine hull and machinery insurance (ocean hull and port operating vessels).
  • War and strikes risks, hull, cargo and protection and indemnity (P&I).
  • Towage and heavy lift operations and contracts, including “knock-for-knock” type contracts.
  • Marine liability including P&I for ship owners and charterers.
  • Marine financier protections.
  • Marine reinsurance.
  • The marine insurance broker’s duties.
