Course programme

Case studies

We know that highly realistic and relevant case studies, mixed with lectures, facilitate the learning process. As in life, there is rarely one fixed answer to a situation and the discussions between the groups and trainers form an important part of the learning objectives. We have therefore included comprehensive case studies in the programme.

Why choose to participate?

The issue of marine insurance is covered broadly in several other BIMCO masterclasses in relation to the special topics discussed. The purpose of this masterclass is to provide the participants with a practical understanding of the types of insurance cover available and how they interrelate and connect with the commercial process. The course will look at insurance from both shipowner and cargo owner perspectives and how the contractual relationships are influenced by the decisions and preferences of the insurance buyer and seller. 

Course certification

A 60 minute open book assessment is part of the course, the purpose is to ensure that the participants use information at their disposal to solve problems in a practical way. A BIMCO certificate will be issued. Case studies.
