Sub-Committee on Human Element, Training and Watchkeeping (HTW), 1st session, 17 to 21 February 2014

 

February 21, 2014

Guidance on security certification for seafarers agreed
Guidance on training and certification requirements for ship security officers and seafarers with designated security duties was agreed by the Sub-Committee on Human Element, Training and Watchkeeping (HTW), when it met for its first session from 17 to 21 February 2014 IMO.
 
The circulars agreed by the Sub-Committee aim to address practical difficulties seafarers have reportedly experienced in obtaining the necessary security certification under the 2010 Manila amendments to the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) and STCW Code.
 
The guidance recommends that, until 1 July 2015, relevant training under section 13 (Training, drills and exercises on ship security) of the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code should

New executive education program launched by WMU and DNV GL

 

Postgraduate Diploma in Executive Maritime Management

The World Maritime University (WMU), founded by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) a specialized agency of the United Nations, and the Maritime Academy of DNV GL, the world's largest ship and offshore classification society, have joined forces to offer an innovative new Postgraduate Diploma.

Managers in today's extremely competitive maritime industry need to cope with the current technical, regulatory and commercial developments. They must also be able to anticipate future developments and react in advance. It is essential that they have up-to-date skills and comprehensive knowledge, if they are to retain their competitive edge.

This unique Postgraduate Diploma is designed to provide a boot camp for managers. Drawing on the strengths and expertise of both partners, it covers the most

Singapur.- Integrated Simulation Centre (ISC)

Integrated Simulation Centre (ISC)

The Integrated Simulation Centre (ISC) has an array of simulators that offer a wide range of scenarios to provide realistic training for ship officers and crew.

The ISC, or Integrated Simulation Centre, was set up to further boost the quality and efficiency of maritime training conducted in Singapore using simulators. Its simulators offer different realistic scenarios for training of ship officers and crew in a risk-free environment.

Although developed primarily for the training of shipboard personnel, the ISC is also capable of conducting marine research and development for port planning. ISC supports the CSS function of conducting assessment of seafarers for certification and licensing using its simulators.

Vision

To become an international leader in marine simulator-based training and research & development.

Mission

To
