Course programme

Why choose to participate?

You will be taught by hand-picked industry experts who have built a career out of solving complicated commercial disputes in the energy offshore sector.

The combination of theory, discussion and casework will make using SUPPLYTIME forms clearer and more manageable. The trainers will share valuable experiences and point participants towards practical solutions, which can be used on the job. The course will also facilitate networking between international shipping peers and enable long-term learning relationships between the participants.

How will this course help your professional development?

SUPPLYTIME is the benchmark for offshore support vessel agreements – and the industry’s contract of choice. It has also been widely adopted by other sectors looking for a contract offering a comprehensive knock-for-knock framework. This course will assist you in identifying how the form works when being used for a wide variety of tasks, thereby helping you to understand and explain your own risks and exposure. You will be able to discuss issues, such as unused maintenance days at the conclusion of the charter, lay-up provisions and the revised knock-for knock provisions with your superiors, P&I club or legal counsel.

Course certification

Participants will be given an option of taking a final assessment (one-hour open-book test) at the end of the course, and Certificate of Achievement will be issued with a grade (distinction, merit or pass). Those not taking the assessment will receive a Certificate of Attendance.

Course materials

BIMCO issues electronic course files as an Adobe PDF file enabling you to make personal notes. All documentation and presentations will be in English. Course access details will be provided once the registration is completed. 

You will also receive access to BIMCO's eLearning module on "SUPPLYTIME 2017: Key Changes and Features".
