I recently completed the FONASBA ACB “The Shipping Agency in Tramp Business” online course and I was extremely impressed with the quality of education it provided. The course was expertly designed and taught by knowledgeable instructors from the Barcelona Shipping Agents Association, who brought a wealth of experience to the table. I found the course content to be comprehensive, current, and delivered in a way that was both engaging and interactive. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to expand their knowledge in the tramp shipping industry. It exceeded my expectations and provided a valuable learning experience.

This program has been great so far. The faculty is supportive and readily available. The courses and individual lessons have been clear and coherent. I am able to work at my own pace, while also having instructors and other students available to answer questions or engage in discussions.

Taking the tramp shipping course, as a newcomer in the sector, has helped me enormously to understand all the casuistry of maritime transport. The course is very well structured and covers 360º of Tramp, from contracting, mk, business, and the sector … helping you to understand the different situations. In my case, as I have only been in the sector for a short time, it has been a great help. The teachers in general are eminently professional so it gives the course a practical nature 100% usable. At the same time, I was grateful that the students were experienced people from the sector because this contributed to generating interesting debates between teachers and students. The UOC is behind the course and at an educational level it is clear that it is a leading online university because everything at a technical level flowed like a ship with the wind behind it. I would recommend it.
