About the course

It is vital that seafarers have a good awareness of the environmental impact that the shipping industry and the world in general can have on our oceans. Within this course we will ensure that all seafarers have the basic knowledge required to ensure an environmentally friendly culture can be maintained onboard any vessel.

Our key focus will be to provide an awareness of MARPOL, what it is, what it contains and why it is so important that MARPOL legislation is adhered to. We will highlight the damage that our oceans are sustaining and how following the MARPOL legislation can help the shipping industry to tackle the problem.
