 BIMCO has launched the first of a range of updated eLearning courses tailored to meet shipping professionals’ needs, using the very latest content authoring technology and platform.

 
The first short documentary course is NYPE 2015, which is based on one of the most popular individual contracts available through BIMCO, only takes an hour! The other two courses, one covers Time chartering and the other Voyage chartering, provides the latest details in depth. They are for anyone wanting to go to the next level in their specialist chartering knowledge by tapping into BIMCO’s expert knowledge and advice.
 
The courses will be available on BIMCO’s new look and feel eLearning platform Docebo, which is an intuitive and easy to use platform that allows the users to choose tutor-led study and/or flexible untutored sessions whenever it suits them.
 
The training is centred around specially designed interactive digital books which are written by industry experts and are unique in the industry. All the information is delivered in the latest HTML 5 format which is smart, user-friendly, highly responsive and easily accessible on computer, tablet, smart phone or via the app.
 
A further five courses are in the pipeline. They all focus on the subjects that BIMCO 'knows best' using the organisation’s unrivalled expertise to deliver specialist training content that goes above and beyond normal expectations.
 
Angus Frew, Secretary General and CEO at BIMCO said: "Our new training packages will be delivered using the very latest digital technology, it’s responsive and intuitive there is quite simply nothing else like it out there, added to which our unrivalled industry expertise delivers the very latest expert content in the most flexible way possible for our course participants."
 
Angus added: "NYPE 2015 is a modern and comprehensive new edition of the most widely used dry cargo time charter party in the industry, and so it seemed logical to use this most topical and sought-after subject to demonstrate and showcase what our new eLearning resources can deliver."
 
"This is just the first step for BIMCO in its ambition to be the first choice and unrivalled leader in any training relating to chartering and of course, using our many BIMCO documents," he concluded.
