The professional development courses are geared to emerging professional areas of training needs. These can spread from the requirement of new regulations and its implementation; areas of need due to a recent crisis or, threat; and also due to introduction of a new technology.
These courses are looking at addressing new challenges faced by the maritime professionals at sea and ashore by enriching their knowledge and skills. The scope includes activities and operations at the shore office, where the ship superintendent is trying to manage a fleet of ships. The management of technology has become a hugely accelerated demon for all maritime professionals today and the regime of life-long learning is here to stay, not just for your need, but as a survival strategy. It is a fact, continual updating of knowledge must be made a part of life for any professional in any industry, not just in shipping.
