The lectures are combined with group discussions and case studies and are therefore highly practical in scope.

At the end of each workshop, participants may take an “open book” exam to assess their level of understanding of the subject matter. This assessment, which leads to the award of a BIMCO diploma, will be of value to employers and employees alike in demonstrating the effectiveness of the training and knowledge attained.
