IBIA has put together an online Bunker Training Course for all bunker industry stakeholders who are keen to acquire general marine fuel insights.
The purpose of this course is to educate the industry in international regulations as well as give guidance on best practice and application of international standards, it said.
Companies who sponsor their employees to attend will improve the skill-set of their staff and their level of in-house knowledge and expertise.
This will enable them to show their clients that they see the value of training and development of their staff, it explained.
IBIA notes that the course will be delivered in a clear, understandable language.
Attendees will be able to ask questions to the trainer and seek clarification on any topics covered, and to test their knowledge with practice questions.
The following are the IBIA Bunker Training Course Modules:
Module 1 – Bunker Market Regulations and Enforcement
Module 2 – Understanding ISO 8217 and ISO 4259
Module 3 – Best practice for suppliers with VLSFO
Module 4 – Best practices for users with VLSFO
Module 5 – Adapting to a changing market
The modules can be taken as stand-alone courses, however IBIS advises that attendees will gain the best value by taking all five modules in the order suggested.
The duration of each module is a maximum of 60 minutes and each delegate will be issued with an IBIA Certificate of attendance.
IBIA has also offered its members a 30% course fee discount.
