LLOYD's Maritime Academy is offering its first 12-week online course focusing on the Ballast Water Management Convention from March 28.
Head of digital learning Ted Bailey comments: 'This course is a great addition to our international portfolio. Ballast water management is hugely topical right now and is set to significantly impact the future of the shipping industry.
'Clear, insightful guidance on the implications of the Convention and how it will affect shipping operations is still needed - this course will provide delegates with all they need to know.'
Split into six modles, the course focuses on ballast water management, the Convention and why it's needed. It will highlight how the environmental concerns are addressed, as well as the role different job functions can and will play in the process of managing ballast water, Hellenic Shipping News Worldwide reported.
Course director for the Certificate of Ballast Water Management, Niels Bjorn Lindberg Mortensen explains: 'Starting in September 2019, 40,000+ existing ships around the world will, over the next five years, need to have designed, integrated and commissioned a ballast water management system.
'There are many pitfalls to avoid and I'm looking forward to engaging with delegates to impart my knowledge and expertise and help them successfully navigate through this complex regulation.'
