Maritime Security Management
& Control as per ISPS Code

Planning for the Good, Fighting the Bad,
and Eliminating the Ugly in Maritime Security

Why Choose this Online Training Course?

The International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) is a comprehensive set of measures to enhance the security of ships and port facilities, developed in response to the perceived threats to ships and port facilities in the wake of the 9/11 attacks in the United States. The ISPS Code is implemented through chapter XI-2 Special measures to enhance maritime security in the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS), 1974. The Code has two parts, one mandatory and one recommendatory.

In essence, the Code takes the approach that ensuring the security of ships and port facilities is a risk management activity and that, to determine what security measures are appropriate, an assessment of the risks must be made in each particular case. The purpose of the Code is to provide a standardised, consistent framework for evaluating risk, enabling Governments to offset changes in threat with changes in vulnerability for ships and port facilities through determination of appropriate security levels and corresponding security measures.

What are the Goals?

At the end of the AZTech online training course, participants will be able to:

  • Define the nature of their facility and how they are affected by the requirements of the ISPS code
  • Identify the mandatory and guidance regulations of the ISPS code
  • Develop risk assessment tools towards the Port Facility Security Assessment (PFSA)
  • Construct the 3 levels of the Port Facility Security Plan (PFSP) with enhanced knowledge of security issues
  • Effectively operate and interact the port facility security plan with the ships security officer and ships master

Who is this Online Training Course for?

This AZTech online training course will be of benefit to those who find themselves responsible for or involved with maritime security at port facilities. In addition, it will raise the awareness for those personnel who have been allocated potential or specific tasks in an existing security programme.

This AZTech online training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Ship Security Officers ( SSO) 
  • Company Security Officers ( CSO)
  • Port Facility Security Officers ( PFSO)
  • Personnel with allocated security duties in the maritime and shipping industries

How will this Online Training Course be Presented?

The delegates will be involved in the latest trends in seminar presentations. The presentations are made up of interactive practical exercises, supported by audio visual material and case studies. Delegates will be expected to participate actively in relating the principles of Maritime security management to the specific needs for their industry. This practical development of skills will benefit delegates who then can return to work ready for implementation of security measures and plans.
