    WMU and DNV GL Maritime Academy partner on new Postgraduate Diploma in Maritime Safety and Security

    The World Maritime University (WMU) and DNV GL Maritime Academy have launched a new Postgraduate Diploma in Maritime Safety and Security (MSS) to help people involved in shipping operations, as well as the associated regulatory framework, develop the vital understanding of all aspects of safety and security required in today’s complex maritime industry.

    “WMU is pleased to offer this invaluable new programme in Maritime Safety and Security with our partners at DNV GL Maritime Academy. The MSS programme directly supports the University’s mission that includes promoting safe, secure and efficient shipping on clean oceans. Offered by distance learning, it further supports the University’s commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 that aims to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning opportunities for all. The MSS diploma is designed for experienced maritime experts who are planning a move from on-board to on-shore as well as for people who are already supervising operations. It goes beyond complying with regulations. This programme offers a deeper insight and understanding of the development of regulations, their implementation and application in the day to day business operations”, said Dr. Cleopatra Doumbia-Henry, President of WMU.

    “To offer the industry a holistic programme that covers the most pressing safety issues in shipping, DNV GL has worked very closely with the World Maritime University (WMU) to develop the new Postgraduate Diploma in Maritime Safety and Security. This collaboration was a natural fit for us, and we are confident that the course combines the best of both organizations – the WMU’s high academic standards and DNV GL’s longstanding technical expertise. At the same time, it supports the maritime safety goals set by the IMO,” said Knut Ørbeck-Nilssen, CEO DNV GL – Maritime.

    For any organization dealing with activities at sea, ensuring safety and security is an essential element of maintaining a solid reputation and retaining profitability. The MSS diploma covers topics of critical importance regarding the quality, safety and security of shipping operations, as well as their environmental impact. The programme examines the contemporary maritime transport system, the fundamentals of shipping operations, examines the environmental aspects and related liabilities of shipping security, explains the IMO’s approach towards the “human element”, and elaborates on the main legal conventions and codes, including the Maritime Labour Convention 2006.

    The five MSS modules cover:

    1) Maritime Transport and Shipping Operations

    2) Safety and Environmental Protection Issues

    3) Maritime Safety: Requirements and Implementation

    4) Legal and Operational Aspects of Maritime Security

    5) Leadership and Best Practices in Port Management

    The 11-month programme is offered by distance learning utilizing a state-of-the-art e-learning platform. Participants who successfully complete the programme are eligible to attend the annual WMU Graduation Ceremony in Malmö, Sweden to have their diploma conferred by the Chancellor of WMU, the Secretary-General of the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
