best practices in maritime education and training institutions
Best Practices in Maritime Education and Training Institutions
  • The institution(s) should have a recognised management system (e.g. ISO 9001) and be audited regularly
  • The institution(s) should work closely with industry – to understand their needs (general and specific) and to ensure familiarity with latest industry issues and practices
  • The lecturers and trainers should be competent, of a consistent high standard, and qualified as course designers and trainers
  • The courses offered by the institution(s) should be focused on competence gaps for both sea-going and shore based staff, and should be externally verifiable
  • Courses should be designed with clear measurable objectives/ deliverables; and assessments should be realistic
  • Course contents should be verifiable against recognised industry/international standards; (in addition to formal STCW requirements, etc. should cover competence in ship handling, cargo handling, et al)
best practices in maritime education and training institutions12
Best Practices in Maritime Education and Training Institutions
  • The facilities and the equipment should be “fit for purpose”, and meet industrial standards
  • The institution(s) should utilise a variety of technologies in the delivery of their course and not only instructor led training (ILT)
  • Commitment of all (institution, staff, industry) to “continuous improvement”


  • The institution should be affiliated to an international education and training association,
  • There should be cross-fertilisation across the disciplines (faculties, students and programmes) in the institution
  • Courses should include “Education for Life” subjects
tots tanker officer training standards new intertanko initiative
TOTS - Tanker Officer Training Standards(new INTERTANKO initiative)
  • Covers officer competences and training, as well as time in rank and time with company
  • An alternative approach to oil companies’ “Officer Matrix” requirements, based upon “Time in Rank” and “Years with the Operator”
  • Incorporates training modules onboard and ashore, as well as verification processes
  • TMSA compatible

Addresses “Quality and Experience”
