Professional Development Course 2022

Aim of the course: Getting familiar with the environmental challenges of cruise traffic considering the current and near-future regulatory developments.
This course has been designed as a one-day full session training to introduce potential sources of marine pollution from cruise ships and the measures being taken to alleviate them.
It is conceived as a three-part training cycle (ideally one per year), and this first session is aimed at people with little or basic knowledge of marine environmental pollution of cruise traffic.
Starting with basic concepts and definitions, including blue economy and circular economy, the training will go through the main sources of pollution, such as oil pollution, sewage, garbage and atmospheric pollution.
However, the core of this training will be atmospheric pollution: NOx, SOx, HCFCs, particulate matter and GHG.
