Understanding Shipping

The Course was developed to fill a need for training in the shipping business for those with little or no previous exposure to ships or shipping. It was inaugurated in Cyprus in 2000, following close co-operation between the Chamber and the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (Cyprus Branch). To date, 1004 candidates have successfully passed the Course. Nine subjects are required to be studied via correspondence with approved tutors here in Limassol over a period of seven months.

In 2016, a new syllabus was developed which has undergone continuous review in the last three years; launching in 14th January 2020.
