The International Maritime Organization (IMO), under its public-private partnership initiative to tackle GHG emissions, the Global Industry Alliance to Support Low Carbon Shipping (Low Carbon GIA), has launched a free online certificate course, which could be taken up by anyone.
The course, developed in association with e-learning specialist Ocean Technologies Group, features videos, text information, quizzes and more for an interactive experience.
The course is divided into two modules. Namely:
- Greenhouse Gases and Energy Efficiency in the Shipping Industry
- Practical Ways of Reducing Energy Use at Sea
Each of these two modules consist of an interactive video lesson, a PDF file of the entire video lesson, which contains the slides used, and a quiz at the end. One must score 70% (7/10) in each of the two quizzes at the end of each module to be eligible to receive the certificate of completion.
The course takes an approximate time of two hours, and can be accessed from here
