Countdown to CMID V9 continues

Published 2 April 2015

When IMCA members flocked to Copenhagen in March for EWEA Offshore 2015, we saw it as an ideal opportunity to reach them by hosting a seminar in conjunction with the show. The topic: the progress of Project TRADEWINDS, which combines the upgrade of CMID version 9 and the introduction of an accreditation scheme for vessel inspectors (which we are working on in collaboration with the International Institute of Marine Surveying (IIMS)). If you missed out on the seminar, don’t worry you can find the information and presentations from the day here now.

Delegates from vessel operators, clients and inspection companies attended the seminar to hear the latest and now you can too by using the links to the presentations given on the day (below). More news will be coming soon as the countdown to the launch of CMID v9 and the accreditation scheme for vessel inspectors continues. We expect to announce the plans for further CMID seminars and workshops shortly – so check back soon for the latest.
