While maritime security and enforcement may be improved by attaining the right equipment and surveillance, that is by no means adequate for the execution of ocean governance mandates at sea. A higher priority must be placed on empowering relevant stakeholders with professional training, operational knowledge and best practices. This is particularly important because unlike on the land, any activity and enforcement at sea raises complex issues that must be carefully navigated. In addition to our regular training programmes, our team of experts provide customised and in-house training that meets your organizational needs.
The ultimate intent of CEMLAWS Africa’s training programmes is to create an expansive and in-depth understanding of maritime law and security issues through insightful, interactive and innovative approaches to learning. Each course employs multiple delivery modes that make each lesson a lasting legacy in the minds of students.
Aside from the traditional training programmes rolling-out in 2017, CEMLAWS Africa also provides capacity building in the following subject areas:
• Maritime Politics, Relations and Justice
• Admiralty Law and Maritime Practice
• Port and Shipping Law
• Fisheries Policy, Conservation and Management
• Maritime Security and Policing
• Protection of Critical Offshore Infrastructure
• Marine Pollution, Control and Response
• The Media and Ocean Governance
• Gender and Maritime Governance
While we take pride in our highly knowledgeable and adept community of instructors, CEMLAWS Africa recognises the need for a discourse approach to learning. Instructors capitalise on the strength of active participation and productive deliberation to ensure that participants gain a holistic picture of each area under study.
Concepts are illustrated using a blend of crisp notes, graphics, videos, case studies and simulation exercises that participants can relate to at the most basic level. At the end of the programme, participants leave with a handful of intelligible hard and soft copy learning tools.
