Publication date: 2017-03-15
The Malmö-based World Maritime University (WMU) and DNV GL will launch a 11 month-long distance learning course in maritime safety and security (MSS).
The course will encompass five modules, including Maritime Transport and Shipping Operations; Safety and Environmental Protection Issues; Maritime Safety: Requirements and Implementation; Legal and Operational Aspects of Maritime Security; as well as Leadership and Best Practices in Port Management.
The registration is already open and will close in August, with courses beginning on September 11th, 2017.
"WMU is pleased to offer this invaluable new programme in maritime safety and security with our partners at DNV GL Maritime Academy. The MSS programme directly supports the University's mission that includes promoting safe, secure, and efficient shipping on clean oceans. Offered by distance learning, it further supports the University's commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goal Four that aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all. The MSS diploma is designed for experienced maritime experts who are planning a move from on-board to on-shore, as well as for people who are already supervising operations. It goes beyond complying with regulations. This programme offers a deeper insight and understanding of the development of regulations, their implementation and application in the day-to-day business operations," Dr. Cleopatra Doumbia-Henry, President of WMU, said.
Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO DNV GL - Maritime, added, "To offer the industry a holistic programme that covers the most pressing safety issues in shipping, DNV GL has worked very closely with the World Maritime University to develop the new postgraduate diploma in maritime safety and security. This collaboration was a natural fit for us, and we are confident that the course combines the best of both organizations - the WMU's high academic standards and DNV GL's longstanding technical expertise. At the same time, it supports the maritime safety goals set by the IMO."
