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.
