Regional Train-the-Trainer course on Energy Efficient Operation of Ships, India

A regional Train-the-Trainer course on Energy Efficient Operation of Ships is being delivered in Mumbai, India from 28 February to 3 March 2017, preparing the personnel needed to cascade knowledge on energy efficiency for ships and related efforts for mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions from international shipping.

The course includes both comprehensive technical training on energy efficient ship operation and the regulatory requirements as well as pedagogic TTT aspects (training in the art and techniques of knowledge transfer in a class room environment), and as part of the course, participants will, in groups, have to develop and deliver small presentations on barriers to ship energy efficiency.


The course also covers in detail key aspects of the Model Course 4.05 for Energy Efficient Operation of Ships which maritime training institutes can potentially incorporate into their teaching curriculum and training activities.

Over 30 participants from maritime training institutes, classification societies and maritime administration, are attending the four-day workshop which is being co-hosted by the Directorate General of Shipping (DG Shipping), Indian Register of Shipping (IRS) and the Indian National Shipowners’ Association (INSA).  Regional participants from Bangladesh, Maldives and Sri Lanka are also attending.
