Our training is based on real life situations, with workshops designed to offer practical experience and preparation.

QMII students learn to develop, implement and audit the security of the complete supply chain including processes on board and ashore (including in port).

The ISPS Code requires establishment of ship and port facility security plans. The Code places responsibility for the ship security squarely on the companies charged with the ship’s management. We offer ISPS training with various options to meet our clients’ needs. This three-day course covers the requirements of ISPS Code.

Because of our independence, you may bring your particular compliance, process and system concerns to class and the instructor will work to answer your questions as best as possible.
