The NI Webinars

Welcome to ‘Webinars’ – a section designed to provide you with access to useful and thought-provoking content. Simply select one of the webinars categorized on the previous webinars section shown on right.

The Nautical Institute provides a series of Webinars on Technical issues that it feels will be of interest to its members, these webinars were started many years ago as ‘virtual Branch meetings’ but have become more popular during the challenging times of Covid.

The live webinars are open to all but the recordings are only available to NI Members. Most webinars run for about an hour and comprise a presentation followed by Q&A. The scope of interests are wide to reflect our members’ interests and in 2020 included topics such as Hatch Cover Inspections, Block chain, Mindfulness in Shipping and Modern Weather Forecasting just as an example.
