Specialized ships capable of transporting non-standardized heavy cargoes. They can be subdivided into four main categories: project cargo ships, open deck cargo ships, dock ships, and semi-submersible ships.
As most heavy lift cargoes are unique, the management of those require very careful planning and coordination to the smallest detail. Detailed information on cargo and the location of loading and discharging are studied in the preparation phase, often before even the contract is actually booked.
The transportation, lifting and installation of equipment for the Oil & Gas, Petrochemical and Renewable Energy projects ashore as well as at sea is among the greatest challenges faced during the project construction. The trend towards increasingly large modules, reactors, boilers, Tanks, coke drums, platforms, pressure vessels etc. requires you are capable to transport loading and discharging the tonnage in an efficient, reliable and safe manner.
Advanced Diploma in Heavy Lifting and Transportation Techniques for Onshore & Offshore Projects is a perfect training course to improve your technical know-how, minimize the operating risk, get your staff certified and provide better quality to operate extremely heavy lifting and transportation projects.
Each module is expected to involve 6 hours of learning time each week, making a total of 52 hours per 2 months period and the associated tests might be completed in less than 2 hours.
The training sections don’t have to be completed in one session, you may return to it as often as you like, the system will bookmark your last page so you are returned directly to where you exited the program.
This course will remain open for 9 months for completion or revision starting from the date of course uploading on the student portal.
One or more extensions of study totaling not more than 6 months may be requested by a student and authorised by the Course Director. The request should be made at least one day prior to the end of the period of study.
Further extensions are used where exceptional circumstances necessitate an extension of the normal period of study in order to complete the final test. An agreed extension may involve the payment of small additional fees.
In line with the LMI’s general approach and the best international standards, the course is designed with the aim of providing excellent training with an emphasis on its concrete application in the job, professional and company principal related activities.
The training include a course framework (detailing the scope, objective, entry standards, and other information about the course), a course outline (timetable), a detailed teaching syllabus (including the learning objectives that should have been achieved when the course has been completed by students), guidance notes and summary of how the students will be evaluated.
The course involves mainly independent study with the assistance of the educational team; study time, in general, is to be spent on activities such as studying the lecture course material and textbooks and preparing your coursework in order to be ready to take the final test.
Your progress in the subjects taught will be tested and consolidated through exercises related to actual cargo surveying cases.
