Training request level:
National

Problem:
In 2020, the IMO (International Maritime Organization) will impose new regulations for the atmospheric emissions of ships. These regulations will impact ship operation; a number of these will change fuel, switching to LNG. These ships are subject to specific international regulations: IGF. The IMO also requires that crew members on this type of ship undergo skills training (IGF STCW).

The Trainees will learn to use new facilities, high-risk facilities (LNG handling)
