IIMS announces its Large Yacht & Small Craft Working Group Super Training Day agenda

IIMS is pleased to announce a full on day on Monday 13 November, which is open to members and non-members. Although classroom based, the afternoon slot inspecting flawed coating plates with a range of testing equipment will be interactive in nature as delegates get to have a play!

The venue for the event is the Spindle Room, Building 1000, Lakeside North Harbour, Western Road, Portsmouth, PO6 3EN. This is ample free parking on site.
