SEMS II training courses

The Safety and environmental management systems (SEMS II) courses are designed to include hands-on exercises and case studies to provide opportunities for authentic assessment and demonstration of competencies.

Lloyd's Register offers the following three SEMS courses:

  • SEMS II champion training
  • SEMS II audit team member training
  • SEMS II audit team lead training

The courses utilize an open learning atmosphere, making use of a combination of lectures, interactive discussion, hand’s-on activities, videos, activities, tools and testing to ensure optimum learning. Upon successful completion of the course, participants receive a Lloyd's Register certificate.

Stacked Course Setup

The SEMS II courses Lloyd's Register offers are available as 'stacked courses'. As the requirements for SEMS II Auditor are also part of the requirements for SEMS II audit team lead training, only the SEMS II audit team lead is required to attend the fourth day to fulfil audit team lead training requirements.

This concept presents a significant cost saving, as the same training room and trainer can be used during the same week for all three SEMS II courses:

Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5
SEMS II champion X
SEMS II audit team member X X X
SEMS II audit team lead X X X X

Course Duration

  • SEMS II champion: 8 hours (Day 1)
