Inspectorate Singapore Laboratory
BunkerExperience Singapore is held in a classroom, in a laboratory and onboard working vessels.
The three morning classroom sessions are held in a dedicated lecture room inside the Inspectorate Singapore Laboratory, one of Singapore’s most active fuel testing and analysis labs. This lab is also the venue for the testing and analysis that students will undertake on the afternoon of Day Two.
The lab is accredited to ISO17025, ISO14001 & OHSAS 18000 standards and operates 24/7 and 365 days of the year. It prides itself on providing a fast turnaround of results and serves as a Technical Centre for the extensive testing needs of Bureau Veritas / Inspectorate customers throughout Asia.
The lab is strategically located in heart of the Jurong area from where it has close access to the terminals and anchorages of Singapore. On the afternoons of Day One and Day Three, a coach will transport students from the lab to the designated launch boarding area. The coach will later return students to the lab and/or to a central location in the City.

Most students attending BunkerExperience in Singapore are local and therefore normally do not require hotel accommodation. For that reason, there is no block booking at a dedicated hotel and accommodation is not included in the course fees.
Singapore has a vast number of hotels to suit all budgets and tastes, so students from outside Singapore are encouraged to look for and book their own accommodation according to their requirements. However, the Petrospot team is always available to help students make the right choice. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need our help.
The following hotels are suggested for convenience:
