Posidonia Masterclass in Shipping now live

(Posted on 26/09/23)

Posidonia Exhibitions, organisers of Posidonia, the International Shipping Exhibition, is launching the Posidonia Masterclass in Shipping online course, available at

The Posidonia Masterclass in Shipping, powered by Naftika Chronika, is an online educational platform that delivers a series of pre-recorded lectures, delivered by distinguished shipowners, managers and executives, providing a comprehensive overview of the shipping industry.

The course is addressed to corporate executives, students and individuals embarking on a career in shipping, seeking a better understanding of this dynamic and demanding industry for their career development.

The Posidonia Masterclass in Shipping offers a hands-on analysis of this challenging industry, as leading professionals from across the shipping industry share their ‘on the job’ experience and knowledge. Each Masterclass module is comprised of presentations addressing specific industry topics. It is available to both individuals and companies providing education to new recruits.

Theodore Vokos, Managing Director, Posidonia Exhibitions SA, commented: “In the last few years we have witnessed an ever-increasing number of professionals from other sectors joining the shipping industry. Many, without a maritime background, working in banking and financial services, the legal and regulatory community and a variety of other related areas, find themselves working for a shipping company or transferred to units within their organisations involved in supporting shipping industry clients and projects. As the industry grows in size and reach, new skills are required and professionals with different skill sets will join the industry. The Posidonia Masterclass in Shipping aims to provide new entrants and professionals considering such a career move with the basic fundamentals, which will empower them and assist them in making the right decisions.”

The programme includes 11 modules presented by a total of 35 speakers and will also be open to young graduates aspiring to a career in shipping, providing insight and presenting the job opportunities available. The course examines each sector of this industry, as well as the disciplines within each sector and their impact on investment and operational decisions, and explores technologies that will shape the industry in the years to come.

Dr. George Pateras, President, Hellenic Chamber of Shipping, commented: “The Posidonia Masterclass in Shipping is an important tool which will help the industry attract and integrate new professionals of all ages. While shipping is continuously evolving and facing new challenges, including decarbonisation and digitalisation just to name a few, education will play an increasingly crucial role. New needs arise constantly, and our industry will have to bring in new people from other sectors. We hope that the Posidonia Masterclass in Shipping can serve as a beacon to inspire and attract young talent.”

Upon completion of the Posidonia Masterclass in Shipping, participants will receive a certificate of attendance signed by Posidonia and will also have access to recommended material for further reading.

The Posidonia Masterclass in Shipping project is supported by AEGEAS Non-Profit Civil Company, the Eugenides Foundation and the Aikaterini Laskarides Foundation, powered by Naftika Chronika and developed by SQ Learn e-learning experts.
