This course provides trainees of all types with in-depth technical guidance on the process of dry-docking ships and vessels.

During this course, trainees will learn the basic principles and safety protocols of dry docking, then progress through all phases of dry-docking: preparation and planning, dry-docking, lay period, and un-docking. The course ends with a discussion of past accidents and how they could have been prevented.
