The first module is classroom tuition carried out at the Mediterranean Maritime Research & Training Centre and is aimed for persons engaged in handling tankers of different sizes carrying out STS operations.

This course deals with Ship to Ship transfers of petroleum cargoes at sea. Our main objective is to create a safe culture within the respective stake holders when performing such dangerous operations that can result in disastrous consequences to human lives and to the marine environment.
