This four-day training course will provide company security officers with the training necessary to meet their obligations under the International Ship and Port Facility (ISPS) Code. Adopting practical approaches to interpreting and implementing measures will help ensure compliance with maritime security requirements. The course is compliant with current IMO requirements. The training course is approved by the UK Maritime Coastguard Agency. We also offer a combined CSO/SSO course.

Who should attend?

This training is of value to everyone assigned as a company security officer who is responsible for overseeing fleet security and safety.

This training provides a rapid and comprehensive programme that enables shipping companies to meet the requirements of the ISPS Code with security onboard their ships.

Key content

This comprehensive programme will train CSOs in the specific responsibilities they have under the ISPS Code. Training begins with three days of comprehensive ISPS Code knowledge, fully immersing candidates in all elements of the Code. This forms the foundation for an expert company security officer.

This is followed by a day of training that provides expertise in the specific requirements and duties to be carried out by company security officers.

What will you learn?

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • organise and ensure that ship security assessments are carried out and the findings used in the ship security plan development

  • ensure the development, submission for approval and, thereafter, the implementation and maintenance of the ship security plan

  • enhance security awareness and vigilance while ensuring security communication and co-operation between the ship's crew, company personnel and contracting governments

  • undertake internal audits and review security activities.

The four days of training culminate in the awarding of certificates of completion indicating that training in compliance with IMO and MCA requirements has been received.
