A new 4 day residential surveying course for yacht and small craft surveyors.
IIMS recognises that for some with less or limited marine surveying experience, especially those who have completed a Professional Qualification with the Institute, actually undertaking those early surveying jobs can be daunting. Am I inspecting this boat correctly and in sufficient detail and is my report up to scratch are just two of the major concerns a surveyor will face?
IIMS is launching a new 4 day residential programme, which will run at the Boat Building Academy in Lyme Regis, Dorset UK from 13 to 16 November 2023.
The key aim of the course is to offer delegates a mix of theory and practical surveying with the final test being to write a report on a boat that has actually been inspected earlier in the week, which will be marked and assessed. Senior surveyors will be on hand to assist delegates as they inspect and survey the boats.
The plan is to spend two days surveying two different boats in the Lyme Regis area. A further day will be turned over to detailed report writing tuition plus a review of the surveyor’s tool kit.
