The aim of the SIRE Inspector Accreditation course is to train candidates to conduct inspections and compile inspection reports on behalf of the OCIMF member who submits reports into the SIRE database.
About the SIRE Inspector Accreditation Programme
The programme of SIRE Inspector Accreditation courses aims to train Applicants to conduct vessel inspections and write inspection reports on behalf of OCIMF Submitting Companies who submit these reports into the SIRE database.
The SIRE Inspector Accreditation programme is organised and managed by OCIMF; however, all Applicants must be nominated by a SIRE Submitting Company in order to gain a place on a course.
A list of OCIMF Submitting Companies can be found on the OCIMF website.
Please read the SIRE Inspector Accreditation Guidelines. For more information including information on the costs of courses (fees). This document also provides details of eligibility criteria (qualifications and experience) that are required to be fulfilled before attending a course.
The training courses have been scheduled considering the potential impact of COVID-19 and the training of Inspectors for SIRE 2.0 (/media/170641/SIRE-20-Overview.pdf).
All New Inspector courses and Refresher Courses in 2021 will be delivered using a blended approach of online learning and instructor-led training sessions. All instructor-led sessions will be delivered via an online platform.
OCIMF will continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 and depending on the circumstances, may choose to cancel, suspend, or reschedule the training courses.
Current Cat-1 Inspectors will be contacted by OCIMF & allocated a place on one of the Refresher Courses listed or will be contacted later in the year to be notified of a place in 2022.
Submitting Companies that are nominating Applicants will be able to select a suitable course during the application process.
