The goal of this course is to equip marine ship engineers and engine department personnel with the knowledge and skills necessary to operate safely in the engine room; to minimise the risk of accidents and injuries; and to promote a culture of safety in the maritime industry.

The "Safety of Ship Engineers and Crew in the Engine Room (Machinery Space)" course is an essential educational training program designed for marine engineers and engine room department personnel on commercial ships. The program aims to raise awareness of potential hazards in the engine room, equip participants with essential safety knowledge, and promote a culture of preventative measures to minimise the risk of accidents and injuries. By completing this comprehensive course, participants will gain an in-depth understanding of the importance of safety in the engine room, learn about various safety equipment and procedures, and explore best practices through real-life case studies.

It is important to stress that you always orient yourself towards your engine room's specifications and follow your shipping company-approved procedures.

You will be presented with an assessment at the end of this course.

Course Author


With a distinguished career in maritime engineering, I bring to the table a wealth of experience from both practical and academic perspectives. I served for over a decade as a marine engineer at sea, mentoring numerous cadets throughout my tenure, with my most recent role being that of a chief engineer.

Over the past seven years, I have pursued an advanced academic path and proudly hold a Master's Degree and a PhD in Maritime Affairs from two prestigious European universities.

My academic pursuits didn't confine me to the classroom. I have actively participated in European maritime research projects as a consultant, continually updating my knowledge across various shipping facets, including the regulatory framework, decarbonization, safety, and marine environmental pollution prevention.

Since 2017, I have transitioned into academia, utilizing my hands-on experience and scholarly insights to impart maritime knowledge. I've been involved in a broad spectrum of STCW and IMO courses, delivering lectures to marine officers at various institutes and academies across Europe.
