The complexity and evolving nature of global trade requires marine underwriters to constantly build up their knowledge to excel in risk assessment and provide the best solutions for their clients.

Our renowned marine intermediate course offers you the possibility to develop your expertise in marine insurance by gaining a comprehensive view on this fascinating line of business with all its sub-classes. The diverse range of participants, speakers and topics will give participants a unique opportunity to learn more about traditional underwriting but also evolving topics that will shape the future of the marine insurance market.

Learning goals

  • Understand the role of marine insurance in the global trade value chain
  • Get a sound understanding of all marine classes of business, reinsurance and new emerging topics
  • Sharpen underwriting skills and be ready to implement them in the daily underwriting job


This two-week course is for insurance professionals who have limited experience in marine insurance but want to gain a comprehensive overview. We do not recommend taking this course if you are an insurance practitioner with long-standing marine experience. Excellent command of English required.
