Next milestone for IUMI’s education programme

By Hendrike Kühl, Policy Director, IUMI

As many of our readers will be aware, the first pillar of IUMI’s education programme, the online webinars, are well underway and have been well received by our membership and others. In the 20 months since the launch of the series we have conducted 24 webinars that were viewed by more than 3,000 participants from over 50 countries. 

The second pillar of the education scheme is due to be launched at our annual Spring Meeting in Hamburg in March. We are excited to present the new online learning cargo tutorial which is tailored specifically for intermediate level cargo underwriters who wish to deepen their knowledge and expertise in the realm of cargo insurance. 

The tutorial consists of eleven modules, all set up in an engaging and interactive fashion: 

1.    Introduction to international trade 
2.    Particular average and sue and labour
3.    General average and salvage
4.    Exclusions
5.    War and strikes
6.    Duration provisions
7.    Claims
8.    Stock throughput
9.    Project cargo
10.    Additional clauses (added by broker or underwriter)
11.    Trade clauses 

Interested members, affiliates and all others are invited to register their interest via The course will be launched this summer. The enrolment fee will be EUR 550  (excl. VAT) for members and EUR 880  (excl. VAT) for non-members. 

The Education Forum is further working on the content for the hull tutorial which is likely to be rolled out at the end of this year.
