Skuld School

At Skuld, we seek the closest possible co-operation with our members and clients, and this is also the motivation behind Skuld School. By helping members and clients understand how P&I works, we develop an even closer relationship between owners/charterers and Skuld.

Skuld School 2020

After carefully evaluating the COVID-19 situation and how it will most probably influence our international participants' travel to Oslo, Norway, we would like to inform you that this year's Skuld School in Oslo will be held as a video conference.

To accommodate the time difference of our international audience, the time for the conference is confirmed as follows:

  • 7, 8 and 9 October at 09:00-12:00 CET
