Customised inhouse training

Designed to meet your specific needs, BIMCO’s customised inhouse training equips your employees with the critical skills needed to drive your organisation forward.

Unlike one-size-fits-all courses, our customised programmes close the performance gap between where your team are now and where you need them to be.

Accelerate your employees’ knowledge of shipping law and contracts by deciding the objectives, location, duration, and topics that will deliver the best learning outcomes for your company.

Speak to our training team today to build a customised inhouse training course that works for your shipping business.


BIMCO’s customised inhouse training


Focus on tailored learning – engineered to enhance your employees’ understanding of the most demanding maritime chartering, operations and legal topics.

Structure your employees’ training solely around your organisation’s priorities, ensuring all lessons are actionable and can be applied immediately at work. Both in-person and virtual training sessions are available.

With the flexibility to decide when, how and where the training takes place, you can strengthen your inhouse shipping law and contracts expertise and maximise your company’s ROI on training.

Key benefits for employers in the shipping industry:

1. Your maritime professionals will thrive from a productive learning environment that aligns training outcomes with your organisation’s goals.

Choose the location for BIMCO training:

  • Live online sessions – Ideal for teams working across different locations. BIMCO’s live online training offers a flexible and engaging multimedia learning experience, accessible from any location.
  • Face-to-face in an external location – Perfect for employers without the appropriate conference space. It’s also ideal if you’d prefer employees to learn away from the disturbances of a busy workplace.

  • Bills of Lading
  • Laytime & Demurrage
  • Offshore, Heavylift, Renewables

What our participants say

“Thank you for a really good seminar. Even though many of us at the course have a lot of practical work experience, the presentations by the trainers served as ‘eyeopeners.’ We will be able to use the added information they provided in our daily work.

I have created a folder on my ‘desktop’ with all the notes, which will serve as useful guidance and reference material for future tasks”.

- Codan Marine, inhouse staff training on offshore topics, October 2020.
