IIMS receives too many surveyor complaints each year, generally caused by poor writing standards and skills, some of which are serious in nature. And the situation is not improving. A report is the surveyor’s intellectual property and he/she lives or dies by it. This maximum three-hour online course, featuring a lot of new content bringing the art of report writing bang up to date, aims to provide the essential information that a yacht and small craft surveyor needs to consider when gathering the information and then compiling his/her report. There are suggested clauses for use in the report to protect against possible litigation and advice in the event that something goes wrong. Additionally, there is advice on contracts and terms of business and how, when and where these should be used.
There is also a practical session and delegates will be required to do a little preparation before the seminar in readiness and encouraged to contribute their thoughts. So, if you want to tidy up and strengthen your report writing skills this is a good place to start.
