The e-learning course on Operational Aspects of BWM is based on the GloBallast Advanced Training Course on Operational Aspects of BWM (developed with financial support from the GIA and the IMO Integrated Technical Cooperation Programme (ITCP)), and is aimed at all stakeholders who will have to deal with operational aspects of ballast water management, such as Port State Control Officers (PSCOs), but also seafarers, and all crew on board a ship. The course contains four modules; Introduction, Operational Aspects, Survey and Certification, and Compliance Monitoring and Enforcement (CME). In each module, the user will explore the issue in the context of the objective of the module, discover key facts to build on the users existing knowledge on BWM and finally use carefully designed hypothetical scenarios to put this new knowledge into practice.
