Insurance & Shipping Course

The Insurance & Shipping Course (ISC) is a course providing an introduction to the practical aspects of shipping, with lectures, workshops and on-site visits to the port. This course is particularly aimed at those who are just starting out their careers in shipping, whether as brokers, underwriters or claim handlers. The on-site visits are an important part of the course and to avoid unduly disrupting the work of firms who have kindly extended their hospitality to us in this way, the number of participants on the course is limited to 8. 

Course date

The course is given three times a year in March, June and October. Pre-registration for future courses is recommended. The available opportunities in 2017 are scheduled from:

  • Monday 9 - Thursday 12 October 2017

Course fee, accommodation, meals and transport

The course fee is € 975 (excl. VAT). This includes all meals, accommodation at a hotel in Rotterdam, and transport for the on-site visits and between our offices and the hotel.
