The course at a glance
This course is divided into two modules:
Module 1: Energy saving by the Engine department
Module 2: Energy saving by the Deck department
Each module focuses on actions that seafarers can take to contribute to the improvement of energy efficiency on board.
The modules are stand-alone and participants may opt to study only the module related to their department. However, in order to gain the Certificate of Completion, participants must complete both modules. As a result, some duplication of content across the two modules can be noticed.

A short quiz at the end of each module allows you to verify if you have achieved the learning objectives. To successfully complete the course and gain a Certificate of Completion, participants have to obtain a passing grade of 70% or above to both assessment quizzes (3 attempts are allowed for each quiz).
