Training Course List

Asdem has created a wide range of industry recognised certified training courses for the oil industry. These courses are offered as public, multi-company events or - upon request - specialised in-house training sessions customised to meet the clients' specific company requirements.

Each Asdem event includes the most up-to-date information available within each subject presented by professional oil industry experts. Some of our most popular training courses include the following:

    Our laytime and demurrage training course is designed specifically for the oil and tanker industries and examines the differences between all of the commonly used charter parties. It includes exercises in calculating and the processing of demurrage claims, recovery of claims, issues that commonly arise in individual claims, how to deal with disputed claims and the dispute resolution procedures.
    Delegates are provided with a comprehensive manual on oil industry laytime and demurrage which together with the course are designed to be a used as reference guide once the course has been completed.
    This two-day programme is specifically designed for demurrage analysts, claims handlers and lawyers who already have a reasonable level of experience and may possibly have previously attended Asdem's laytime and demurrage training seminars and conferences.
