• Welcome to the WofSPortugal Academy!

    The WofSPortugal Academy is the training arm of the ‘World of Shipping Portugal’ initiative to disseminate maritime knowledge. Its programme covers Master Classes and Short Courses in Distribution Channels, Logistics and Supply Chain, and Maritime Economics.

    The Master Classes are designed to target a specific topic, deliver unique competencies to highlight the business's theoretical and practical aspects and offer participants the opportunity to solve their companies’ problems and improve their professional performance; they are delivered online and in English.

    The Short Courses are broader in scope. They are designed to offer background knowledge on a specific subject, bring together interrelated topics, and mix theoretical concepts with practical work and industry examples. They are delivered online and in class, in English and Portuguese.

    Within the scope of training, World of Shipping Portugal established a partnership with Speakwell to teach English terminology within the scope of logistics and supply chain, nautical and maritime business, seaports, and oil and gas activities. 

    The WofSPortugal Academy started its activities in May 2023. The Moodle platform was installed. The focus is not so much on the quantity but the quality of what is being taught, and duly care is exercised in the choice of Guest Speakers. Overall, the training programme is committed to training professionals with the necessary competencies to help them make the appropriate decisions for the success of the business community in which they are inserted.
