Dear Colleague,
As the first international qualification for marine surveyors, Lloyd's Maritime Academy and the National Sea Training Centre
have now been educating marine surveyors, potential marine surveyors and associated maritime professionals since 1998.
Since the beginning over 1,800 participants from all corners of the world have taken or are currently taking the Diploma in
Marine Surveying.

The course is designed primarily to support the valuable and important work that marine surveyors around the world carry
out and it also aims to help recruit future surveyors, not just from the dwindling number of seafaring professionals, but also
from non-seafarers that have the academic ability and an interest in learning about marine surveying. This course provides
the knowledge to assist in a person's personal and professional development towards becoming an informed, professional
marine surveyor.

The maritime world is truly international and in order to give marine surveyors and seafarers every opportunity to study,
delivery by distance learning has been chosen because this method eliminates geographical boundaries and barriers.
In addition to hard copies, all modules will also be available from the course website. This provides students with the
opportunity to interact with other participants on the course in a secure and dedicated environment.

The Diploma in Marine Surveying meets the Continuing Professional Development criteria for the Royal Institution of
Naval Architects (RINA), the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) and is also
approved by the Nautical Institute.

Successful completion of the course also provides a credit rating towards an Open University undergraduate degree as well
as towards the units required to obtain a masters degree at Middlesex University. The Open University offers further study by
distance learning and Middlesex University has in place a work-based learning degree programme for successful Diploma
candidates.

We are confident you will find that this unique Diploma provides you with a level of knowledge and skill that will benefit you
and your employer.

We look forward to receiving your application to enrol.

THE ADVANTAGES OF STUDYING BY
DISTANCE LEARNING
Increasingly we all face more pressures
in our business lives. Finding the time
to attend courses of any kind can be
very difficult and well meant plans are
often put aside indefinitely.

Distance learning is the solution to
your training needs. You can enjoy
the full benefits of studying, whilst
still in employment using this
freedom and flexibility to your
advantage.

If your circumstances or contact
details change, all you need to do is
inform us  the advantages of distance
learning are still all yours.

Two optional tutorial seminars are also
held at the beginning and towards
the end of the course providing an
opportunity to meet the Course
Director, course authors and fellow
students.

The courses have a variety of delivery
methods including hard copy, online
access or a blend of both enabling
access to the material wherever you
are in the world.

You will also have access to some
interactive learning material that
has been developed to complement
the course. This includes quiztype
questions to test yourself on what
you have learnt as well as sections
summarising the main content
contained in the core modules for
easy revision.

You can set the pace at which
you learn applying the knowledge,
skills and expertise gained from
the materials to your work straight
away.

ACCREDITING AND SUPPORTING BODIES

COURSE DIRECTOR :
Paul Russell MSc. BA (Hons) MIMarEST

Paul Russell completed a traditional engineering cadetship with Cunard Shipping

Services. During his sea-going career he served on all types of ships from passenger

ships to super tankers and gained his class one certificate in 1983. His sea service included medium

speed engines powering small tankers; slow speed engines driving bulk carriers and a steam plant

providing the power for container ships. Paul saw service as assistant to the superintendent during

the building of Cunard’s new Ro-Ro ship, the Atlantic Conveyor at Swan Hunter’s shipyard on the

River Tyne.

After his sea-going career Paul was recruited by the National Sea Training Trust to introduce marine

engineering education and training into the college at Gravesend. Subsequently Paul also took

charge of the college estates and finances and during this time he studied to obtain a Masters

degree in Educational Management at the University of Greenwich. In 1996 Paul was appointed

as Head of School at the National Sea Training Centre at North West Kent College.

COURSE FEES AND ADMINISTRATION

HOW TO ENROL
APPLICATION FORM : Complete the “Application for Enrolment Form” and send
to Daisy Connor at Lloyd’s Maritime Academy.
APPROVAL : Your application will be forwarded to the Course Director for review.
Participants will be notified in writing by Lloyd’s Maritime Academy if they have
been successful or not. This process normally takes 2 weeks to 1 month to
complete. An invoice will also be sent once the participant is accepted onto the
course and participants have until this time to withdraw with no penalty.
APPLICATION DEADLINE : All applications should be received by Wednesday
5th November 2008.

FEES
PAYMENT : Payment is due within 30 days of the invoice being issued or by
the start of the course, whichever is soonest. If you have not received an invoice
within one month of the start date please contact Laura Beachus
tel: +44 (0)20 7017 5510. Please note non payment of fees will result in the
witholding of course materials.
MAILED DIPLOMA FEE : For Diploma/Certificate candidates receiving the printed
modules the fee is £2749 (VAT exempt). This covers the modules; assignment
marking; tutorial seminar costs; website access; examination costs and the
issuing of the Diploma/Certificate.
ONLINE DIPLOMA FEE : For Diploma/Certificate candidates undertaking the
course entirely online the fee is £2749 (VAT exempt). This covers access to the
modules; assignment marking; tutorial seminar costs; examination costs and the
issuing of the Diploma/Certificate.
FOR INTEREST ONLY FEE : The ‘For Interest Only’ fee is £2050 (VAT exempt).
This covers the core modules only. Students are not expected to complete the
assignments, attend the seminars or sit the exam.
ADDITIONAL SPECIALIST MODULE FEE : One specialist module is included in
the full Diploma/Certificate fee. Additional specialist modules can be studied at a
cost of £350 (VAT exempt) per module. A separate examination must be taken
for each specialist module studied.
AIR COURIER FEE : An additional charge of £300 (VAT exempt). This is
recommended for use by participants who require the modules mailed and
experience delays in receiving their post due to poor postal service in their area.
Other overseas mail will be mailed by air. Nothing is sent surface mail.
INSTALMENTS : The course fee can be paid in 4 equal instalments over the first
8 months of the course. Please indicate this on the application form, if required.
RINA MEMBERS : There is a 10% discount available for members of RINA. Please
state your membership number on the application form to take advantage of
this offer. Membership numbers will be verified with RINA before the discount
is applied.
NOT INCLUDED IN THE FEES : Any travel or accommodation costs must be met
by the participant. If a student chooses to sit their exam at an alternative venue,
the venue may apply an additional charge to be covered by the student.
