This course is a lessons-learned, custom-designed program for shipyard personnel and subcontractors to shipyards. The topics of discussion have been selected from common sources of shipyard errors, disagreements or disputes analyzed in numerous prior contracts. The lessons learned by others through their mistakes are used to create positive, problem-avoidance practices for shipyard personnel. The result for the shipyard is an enhanced ability to identify costs which are the Owner's responsibility and sell them to the Owner instead of absorbing those costs.
Do your job responsibilities fall into any of the following categories? If so, our Shipyard Management course may be right for you.
