  2. 2. The heart of any shipping company lies in the operations department: the starting point of all activities involved in running vessels. The Certificate in Ship Operations introduces the key operational functions within shipping organisations. It provides an essential guide to those working in (or aiming to work in) ship operations, as well as those seeking a deeper understanding of how the global shipping industry works. An operator’s top priority is to ensure the safe, smooth and economical running of their principals' fleet whilst ensuring that contractual obligations are met. They orchestrate the activities of all departments towards the achievement of a common goal: making profits through hiring ships. The operations department is also responsible for evaluating and reporting overall fleet performance, condition and maintenance including safety and running costs. It is imperative to co-ordinate the implementation of, and compliance with, the multitude of ever- changing maritime codes and regulations governing international shipping. This indispensable course brings together leading industry practitioners to guide you through the main areas of knowledge needed to fulfil this complex and crucial function. Six clear and comprehensive modules show you how to: • Provide post-fixture support to the vessels • Issue voyage instructions • Ensure ships perform as per the charterparty agreements • Ensure the safe and efficient carriage and delivery of cargoes • Supervise the disbursement of all funds necessary to run the ships • Arrange for freight / hire / demurrage collection from charterers • Arrange for the provision of the vessels with bunkers. This certificate is a must for anyone who needs a greater understanding of ship operations, and represents an excellent foundation for higher studies and career advancement. It is not only beneficial to shipping industry entrants, but is an ideal refresher to those wanting to consolidate or update their knowledge. Whether ship or shore based, distance learning means you can upgrade your skills and develop your career prospects with the flexibility of 100% online delivery. You can access, save or print course materials to study when it’s convenient for you. Your expert faculty members are on hand to answer questions and guide discussion via the online forum, where you can also network with fellow students from around the world. I look forward to welcoming you onto the programme and expanding your knowledge of Ship Operations - one of the most highly-valued functions in any shipping company.
