I attended The IUMI Cargo Tutorial between September and November 2018. I really appreciate the flexibility of online training and that I could study when it suited me. It was very exciting to review and broaden my knowledge in respect of cargo risks. I could even compare English and US cargo clauses in detail and the way that General Average is described is very easy to understand.
What interested me the most was project cargo insurance and the problems of storage in cargo coverage. I was able to use new information immediately and put it into practice. It was clear for me from the beginning that the tutorial was prepared by cargo risk practitioners. The tutorial is a good course not only for beginners, but also experienced underwriters can benefit from this package and refresh their knowledge.
The tutorial is divided into 11 topics, each of which deeply explain the material. The process of learning is interactive and requires the student to be involved. You can also contact the authors and experts if you have any additional queries or doubts - their responses are very quick. The issues are described in simple and clear language which is very important for people whose first language is not English (like me).
I am looking forward to the next IUMI education programme. E-learning/online tutorials are a great option with regard to costs, time and effectiveness of learning.
