The courses will be offered through the class society’s training and education service, ClassNK Academy, split into four separate modules.

The introductory course delivers a broad overview of the shipping and shipbuilding sectors, suitable for newcomers to the industry, followed by three specialised courses on Stability, covering buoyancy principles and both intact and damaged stability; Propulsive Performance, detailing the basics of propeller operation, hull form impact, and efficiency enhancements; and Structure and Strength, addressing load considerations and assessment of hull integrity.
