Are you a professional woman of a Port and / or Maritime Authority of a member country of the International Maritime Organization? This information on the IMO port management and operations courses, organized by IPER in partnership with HAROPA-Port du Havre, is for you.
As part of the International Maritime Organization’s ongoing and increasing efforts to support United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 5, IMO’s gender programme has developed long-standing partnerships to provide gender-specific training for maritime women, by facilitating access to high-level technical training for women in the maritime sector in developing countries; and creating the environment in which women are identified and selected for career development opportunities in maritime administrations, ports and maritime training institutes.
Each year, in collaboration with the Le Havre Port Authority, 2 two-week short upgrading courses are organized by IPER for female officials from maritime and/or port authorities of developing countries to improve management and operational efficiency of their ports.
The next English seminar will take place from 24 June to 5 July 2019. Invitations will be sent mid-February by IPER to interested maritime and/or port authorities.
Lectures are delivered on a variety of port matters including, port organization and challenges, port technology and information system, security, marketing, tariffs and logistics as well as facilitation of maritime traffic, ship/port interface and concession contracts. Visits are usually organized to the Port of Le Havre and the Port of Rouen, enabling the participants to experience for themselves the day-to-day operations of a port, with a view to applying this knowledge back in their respective countries.
