What is the worst thing that could happen? "It is only Ballast Water" you might say. However, the consequences of poor Ballast Water Management could cause health problems for many people, financial losses for the company, and also harm the world's ecosystems. There is a reason that this convention entered into force. In this course, you are going to learn more about your role and about different methods for handling Ballast Water.

No matter your role onboard, you have an important part to play in understanding the challenges of effective BWM, recognising the threat to marine biodiversity, and delivering on the global initiatives to protect it.

Make sure that you are familiar with your method and make sure that it is followed. Sometimes it is hard to realise the outcomes of one's actions since the effects of them are shown below the surface. After you have completed this Ballast Water Management Awareness Training course, you will appreciate the positive impact that following the convention regulations can have.
