Producing sewage on board a ship cannot be avoided, and the management of sewage disposal must, therefore, be carefully considered. Sewage treatment systems are often fitted to ships in order to ensure the safe disposal of sewage, in line with regulatory requirements. This course gives an overview of the sewage treatment system and how it ensures compliance with the relevant regulations.

During this course, you will learn about sewage on board ships, what we do with sewage and how this is regulated. What is sewage and how do we ensure discharge sewage is in line with regulations? You will learn how a sewage treatment system is operated and the health and safety implications associated with sewage.

You will also become familiar with the regulations that must be complied with when discharging sewage from ships.
