Sept 2014


Maritime Training has come a long way since the TS Dufferin. The increased demands of global trade, types of vessels, accidents and losses have had a deep impact on standards of maritime training worldwide. The noble attempt of STCW 95 amendments to STCW 78 to standardize training may have opened up a lot of avenues for entrepreneurs to open up training institutes, and a huge amount of capital has been invested in India on the infrastructure for Maritime Training.

However there has been inadequate effort as far as building up “transferors of the knowledge, skill and attitudes” are concerned. The Academic council inspections and ISO certification & grading stop at the classroom, and the health and atmosphere in a classroom is not objectively measured.

Since the end user of these training institutes are the industry, any inaccuracies in training and building up competencies result in loss of life, property or damage to the environment as well as irreparable loss to reputations. As the diagram below indicates there is a wide gap between training and competence.

We are pleased to announce a seminar cum workshop (to be conducted on 6th September 2014) by SYNERGISTIC SOLUTONS in our effort to contribute to maritime Training, learning and performance.. This Seminar forms part of a program to accelerate learning systems for future seafarers will concentrate on the “Best Habits of Maritime Trainers/ Transferors”. It will go into the underlying theory behind each practice and the need for Assessments and questions and its role in learning and performance

Who should attend: –
CEOs of manning and training organizations, DPA/CLOs, Technical Superintendents, Sailing Masters, Chief Engineers, Chief Officers and 2nd Engineers
