The course is designated for officers and officers in charge of a navigational or an engineering watch.
The aim of marine casualty investigations is to prevent similar casualties. Open, systemic and fair investigations, which are not aimed at apportioning liability or blame, have proved effective in the aviation industry. Such an international approach in the marine world may have helped prevented unacceptable losses at sea. This course aims to introduce participants to a system of investigation, which may help to prevent future casualties.
