New online course launched to help maintain ships’ pipework
A new global training course is being launched to support the effective identification, inspection and maintenance of ship’s piping. ‘Pipeline Inspection’ has been developed using the expertise of The Standard Club in loss prevention and based on the guidelines developed with RINA Services. It has been created by maritime technical training specialists, Marlins, to be easily accessible to all crew in an online e-learning format.
Pipelines have a number of functions on board the vessel, from conveying cargoes to carrying water and fuel around the vessel. Due to its location, pipework can often be neglected, causing major disruption, time off charter, and costly repairs should it fail.
Pipeline Inspection is designed to be undertaken by any officer with responsibility for pipeline inspection and maintenance. The course offers a practical guide on the types of pipework that can be found on board, advice on effective maintenance and suggestions for repairs in the event of pipe failure.
Pipeline Inspection will be included in the next update to the Marlins eLearning Suite for Seafarers. The course can also be purchased by individuals via the Marlins online shop and is available to The Standard Club members at a discounted rate, further details will be sent.
