Certification & Training Programs



Ship Project Management Programs

  • Contract Management for Ship Construction, Repair, & Design (3 days): Fisher Maritime's Contract Management for Ship Construction, Repair, & Design is a lessons-learned course geared to those involved in vessel construction, repair, and design. Instead of a theoretical course on contract management, the program is based upon the ‘scar tissue’ from marine contractual disasters. The program is designed for - project managers who handle day-to-day relations with the other party, persons who form contracts, and senior managers who monitor contract-related resources/cash flow.
  • Port Engineer's & Owner's Representative's Course (3 days): Fisher Maritime's Port Engineer's & Owner's Representative's Course is a lessons-learned course designed for the ship-owners personnel to help assure ship-owners receive the maximum value for money spent in ship construction, repair, and conversion contracts. The program is designed for personnel who - prepare specifications, accompany the ship to the shipyard, and arrange for new/growth/change work during contract performance.
  • Shipyard Management of the Customer & Contract Course (2 days): This course is a lessons-learned, custom-designed program for shipyard personnel and subcontractors to shipyards. The topics of discussion have been selected from common sources of shipyard errors, disagreements or disputes analyzed in numerous prior contracts. The lessons learned by others through their mistakes are used to create positive, problem-avoidance practices for shipyard personnel. The result for the shipyard is an enhanced ability to identify costs which are the Owner's responsibility and sell them to the Owner instead of absorbing those costs.
