The Swedish club welcomed a record number of delegates to its Marine Insurance Course (MIC) 2022, again offered online, following the success of last year’s pilot.
Nearly 90 delegates registered for the course, representing 55 companies and joining sessions from 14 countries around the world. A wide range of the marine industry was represented with people involved in insurance and claims handling in the ship ownership and management sectors, as well as marine insurance brokers.
Lars Malm, Director of Strategic Business Development and Client Relations, explains: “The MIC aims to give participants a basic understanding of all aspects of marine insurance. It has been designed to give a newcomer to the industry a sound knowledge of the important aspects of marine insurance, whilst providing an excellent refresher for those returning to the industry or who have entered the business at a higher level. .
“We are delighted to say that we had positive feedback on the course and participants appreciated its flexibility, which still allowed for interaction with other delegates during the workshop sessions.”
This year’s course covered all aspects of marine insurance, from terms and conditions to practical claims handling, and focused on the three main types of marine insurance, P&I, H&M and FD&D.
This learning was then followed by a series of interactive workshop sessions, where delegates could choose from a wide range of topics including collisions, general damage and salvage, personal injury, pollution, freight, FD&D and other responsibilities.
The Club launched the online platform last year to enable it to offer the course despite pandemic restrictions. The platform received very positive feedback from all participants and the decision was made to run it online again this year.
In recognition of the unprecedented challenges facing seafarers around the world, once again the Swedish Club will donate all fees received from non-members to charity.
