The tanker operation course’s learning structure is considered suitable for new intakes about to serve on tankers and tanker company management personnel who wish to form a broad knowledge of tanker operations. The course also serves to broaden and fill in the knowledge gaps and give a better grounding to those professionals already in this section of the marine industry (marine crew including onshore technical staff, suppliers, educators, trainers as well as equipment manufacturers).
