Skuld School

Skuld School

Skuld seeks the closest possible co-operation with its members and this is also the motivation behind Skuld School and the ‘Certificate in P&I Insurance’, which is unique in the P&I industry. By helping members understand how P&I works, we develop an even closer relationship between owners/charterers and Skuld.

What is the Certificate in P&I insurance?

The Certificate is awarded following completion of a 3-day intensive course. The course covers the rudiments of P&I insurance and an introduction to Skuld’s organisation. It covers everything needed for a good working knowledge of the subject. The presentations are in good hands: Skuld’s own experienced staff members.
