13th March 2019 – Scrubbers and Ballast Water Systems for Superintendents – InterManager Environmental Conference for members – Venue and agenda are being worked on.


23 March to Sunday 31 March 2019 – EMCS are now taking reservations for the next Ship Superintendents’ Training Programme, running from Saturday 23 March to Sunday 31 March 2019.

The course is endorsed by DNV-GL, IMarEST, University College, the Isle of Man Ship Registry, InterManager and EMCS International.

Originally designed for newly appointed recruits to the position of Superintendent and seagoing Engineers and Deck Officers coming ashore, the training has evolved to provide an excellent foundation in all aspects of maritime operations.  The programme welcomes delegates from all over the world from a variety of roles and maritime sectors including commercial shipping, yacht management, ship repair etc, to gain an oversight and understanding of roles and responsibilities to facilitate good working relationships.

The major asset of the programme is the vast wealth of experience from a professional team of lecturers, having accumulated between them over 250 years’ experience in every aspect of the Shipping Industry.  Many employers have realised the fundamental benefits of an exceptionally intensive nine consecutive day programme, encompassing two weekends, to the point that the programme is now compulsory for their new superintendents (and often employees holding a variety of other positions within their organisation).


The cost of the 9 day programme is £3,000.  If you would like any further information or to make a reservation then please do not hesitate to contact us, or visit http://www.emcs.co.im/superintendents-course/

Seafarers UK 24 Peaks Challenge, 6-7 July

For one of the toughest, most exhilarating and empowering corporate events, Seafarers UK is recruiting teams of four-seven walkers, plus a support driver per team, for the charity’s 2019 fundraising event in July. Teams need a good base level of fitness and a commitment to training, including steep hill hiking to prepare for the two 10-14 hour back-to-back days. To contribute towards vital funding to support seafarers, every team pledges to raise a minimum of £4,000 through fundraising. Every team member receives a T-shirt, medal and great support for their preparation and fundraising, both in the build-up to the event and during the exciting weekend. After this fantastic team-building and truly challenging event, team meetings will never be the same! Does your organisation have what it takes?
