Energy efficient ship operation – free online course launched
IMO’s public-private partnership initiative to tackle GHG emissions, the Global Industry Alliance to Support Low Carbon Shipping (Low Carbon GIA), has launched a free to access E-Learning course aimed at seafarers and anyone interested in this aspect of shipping. The self–paced course, ‘An Introduction to Energy Efficient Ship Operation’ is intended as a first glimpse into how GHG emissions from ships can be addressed.
The online course, designed by e-learning specialist Ocean Technologies Group, features videos, text information, quizzes and more for an interactive experience. Each module includes interactive lessons, resources for additional learning as well as a final summary. The course is specifically designed to be accessible to non-technical audiences. It was developed and funded by the Low Carbon GIA, a partnership under the framework of the IMO-Norway GreenVoyage2050 Project.
