The Centre for Maritime Law and Security (CEMLAWS) Africa will run two five-day courses for maritime professionals in August and November 2018 respectively. Both programmes will be conducted in Accra, Ghana.
From 6 to 10 August, the course Maritime Regulation and Enforcement will introduce participants to a broad range of regulatory frameworks for maritime operations. Participants will also be enabled to identify enforcement instruments suitable for their countries and equipped with skills to ensure the security and good order of the maritime environment.
From 12 to 16 November, the course Maritime Administration, Ports Management and Shipping Law will provide a deep insight into shipping law, help participants to understand maritime administration and provide additional skills for the management of organisations with a maritime remit.
The target audience for both courses includes personnel from navies, coastguards and marine police forces, personnel in the shipping and offshore oil and gas industries, lawyers and state attorneys as well as officials from ministries and departments including environment, fisheries, customs and immigration.
