ISO 50001 Energy Management Training Course

This seven module course is aimed at personnel on ships and in the shore based offices of shipping companies implementing an Energy Management System. It teaches them about the rationale, the practicalities and the procedures that are essential to Energy Management Systems. To illustrate and clarify the principles, the Course looks at the path taken by a fictitious shipping company in establishing and implementing an energy management system, an EnMS. This portion of the content is based on the practical experience of introducing the ISO Energy Management Standard, ISO 50001, in a shipping company.
