12 February 2019
Online Report Writing
Available to online only delegates starting at 12 noon (London UK time) for a maximum of 3 hours.
Cost: £75

Your hosts and presenters for this seminar are Paul Homer, IIMS Chairman of Standards and Mike Schwarz, IIMS Chief Executive Officer.

IIMS receives too many surveyor complaints each year, (some of which are serious in nature), generally as a result of poor writing standards and skills. And the situation is not improving. A report is the surveyor’s intellectual property and he/she lives or dies by it as does his or her professional reputation. This maximum three-hour online course, featuring a lot of new content, bringing the art of report writing bang up to date, aims to provide the essential information that a yacht and small craft surveyor needs to consider when gathering the information and then compiling his/her report.

18 February 2019
Large Yacht & Small Craft Working Group Sunseeker factory visit followed by presentations at the RNLI headquarters.
Available to real time delegates only.
Cost: £125

Join the first 2019 IIMS Large Yacht & Small Craft Working Group for what looks like being a fascinating day on Monday 18 February 2019. In the morning the group will be touring the Sunseeker factory and facility in Poole to get a greater insight into how the vessels are constructed and what the future for Sunseeker looks like as they prepare to move to metal hulls in addition to their GRP product range. After lunch, which is served at the neighbouring RNLI headquarters, the group will continue the day with a series of presentations including one from A-Plan Marine Insurance with case studies and a Q&A session and another from Marine Results on composite NDT testing for hulls and masts.

We look forward to seeing you at an IIMS event either real time or online soon.
