Content available remote Considerations on Maritime Watch Keeping Officers’ Vocational Training
The activities on the board of the ships are based on competences and skills. In order to have competent people, you must to create them. This is the role of the maritime training system, to create competent persons for the maritime field. Part of this system is the vocational training for the deck officers. Maybe the most important role of the vocational system is to create competences based on the previous skills and knowledge acquired during the practice period on the board of the ship.
Content available remote Project PRACNAV for a Better on Board Training Curricula
During 2008, Constantza Maritime University has developed a project financed with European funds that aims for an increase in the quality of training and the practical skills of the students that will be working in the maritime industry, by organizing and undergoing on board training stages at higher standards. It is expected that once this objective is achieved, there will be a 40% increase in the chances of employment in the shipping companies for the Romanian students. A coherent, modern application of such a program with fully integrated on board training sessions, would ensure a better chance of employment for our students in the European fleet. If the „equality of chances” principle is considered, the increase of theoretical knowledge by acquiring specific practical skills for those students that undergo PRACNAV, for graduates of female gender an increase of up to 60% in their employment chances is expected as maritime officers on board European ships.
Paper presents prepared by Bulgaria, France, Islamic Republic of Iran, IFSMA, ITF, Malaysia, Poland, Ukraine and the United Kingdom proposal of amendments [1] to the STCW Convention and its Code part A and B [2] establishing international qualification standard for electro-technical officers. It is proposed that the certificates of competency for electro-technical officer and senior electro-technical officers shall be placed in Chapter III “Engine Department” of the STCW Convention, under new Regulations III/6, III/7 and new sections A-III/6, A-III/7 and B-III/6, B-III/7 of the STCW Code. This amended concept it is a logical continuation and further development of the paper [3] which concerned the same issue and was presented at the MarCon 2008 proceedings.
Content available remote MET System in Ukraine
It is believed that Ukraine is one of the largest seafarers’ suppliers to the world maritime fleet. The vast and diverse system of waterways and lakes in addition to the tradition of seafaring and maritime history which dates back more than 200 years create the necessary basis for the government which considers it more important to provide graduates with the full education rather than merely to produce 'vocational' specialists. Moreover Ukraine has already made some major steps on the road to Euro integration having taken part in the Bologna process. Therefore it’s not surprising that on 15 January 2005 a new resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine was approved. The Odessa National Maritime Academy(ONMA) was the first to visualize it by means of the new-presented system of MET.
Content available remote Higher Performance in Maritime Education Through Better Trained Lecturers
The necessity to have good trained officer’s onboard ships today comes in complete accordance with the present development of the shipping industry, materialized through presence of high technology and computerized equipment. This is not just an IMO request, but is an imperative in order to have safer seas and oceans and a cleaner marine environment. The training level of present and future officers is directly connected with the level of training and knowledge of trainers and teachers. For this reason we consider as compulsory to reach higher performance for the personnel involved in maritime education, especially in the academic field. In this way, in the present, Constanta Maritime University is developing a project dedicated to initial and con-tinuous training of younger lecturers, who are for the first time in contact with the maritime educational system. Also, this project have parts dedicated to experienced lecturers with many years in the system, targeting the goal of maintaining the level of knowledge already acquired, and bringing new training procedures and techniques in accordance with the present necessity. In the present paper we will describe the concept of this project, its principal goals and courses developed in-side in order to have better trained trainers from their beginning activity.
Nowadays the equipment used on ships is becoming more and more sophisticated, safety of shipping depends heavily not only on trustworthiness of high-tech products, but also on mariners’ competence. It is necessary to find methods to enable seafarers to keep track with technical developments. Simulators as a tool combined with a properly developed course curriculum and qualified instructors provide an appropriate method not only for training, but also for measuring, assessing and evaluating individual mariner performance in order to test levels of competency and proficiency. According to Nieri (1995, p. 1/6), “The development of performance-based assessment tools would utilize the widely-recognized advantages of simulators and part-task trainers to generate a scenario in which the license candidate must demonstrate his knowledge of system relationships, knowledge of operational procedures, monitor systems and situations, respond to unexpected occurrences, identify and diagnose problems, and manage personnel, in a dynamic world“. This paper discusses the usage of new capabilities of the NTPRO 4000 full mission ship handling simulator in the assessment and evaluation processes at Lithuanian Maritime Academy.
Using modeling and simulations has established itself as the most effective approach of preparing personnel engaged with crisis management, including the training of port security responsible personnel. On the background of presenting the overall methodology of transforming Bulgarian Harbour Protection System, the paper formulates a set of requirements for port security related education and training and proposes a general model of a simulating complex supporting the education and training process.
Content available The Study on Social Security of Seamen
The social security of the seamen is complex and it represents the protection of the human rights. There are a large number of seamen in China. The social security laws of the seamen in China are behind. Together with the approval of the Maritime Universal Labor Convention of the ILO we should regularize the social security of the seamen basong on the real conditions of China.
For ages, oral and essay writing exams have been used for evaluating the knowledge on technical subjects given to the students at Vietnam Maritime University (VIMARU) and other universities in Vietnam as well. These two examination forms showed a lot of weak points such as limited exam content, no objectiveness and big consumption of time in evaluation. It is the time a reform needed to be done. Reform of technical subject examination with multiple choice- essay writing exam forms is presented in this research paper. Multiple choice exams have already widely been applied to the subjects in the fields as economics, social sciences and foreign languages, etc, but rather humble to technical ones; because, using only single, multiple choice exam forms for evaluating the students’ knowledge on such a subject is not quite reliable or adequate. The situation will be improved with the examination reform. It was proved by carrying out experiments at VIMARU from year 2003 up to now. In this paper, the methods of preparation of multiple choice-essay writing combined exam questionnaires, especially, multiple choice questionnaires of problems, and the organization of the combined exams are also studied and presented.
This survey research aimed to determine the status of and compliance to and adherence to the quality standards system by the maritime schools in the Philippines. Frequency, mean and standard deviations were the descriptive statistics used and t-test, analysis of variance, stepwise multiple regression analysis and Pearson’s r were the inferential statistics used. The participants’ perceived the status of the quality standards system among maritime schools as ‘strong’. The participants’ perceived the compliance with and adherence to the quality standards system among the maritime schools as “very high”. Location of school, enrolment size, faculty size, size of support staff, accreditation, position in school, work experience and educational preparation are significant predictors of the status, compliance with and adherence to the quality standards system in maritime schools. No significant relationships existed between the participants’ perception of the compliance and adherence to quality standards system among maritime schools and personal-related factors.

Content available remote The STCW 1995 Convention: Awareness, attitude, and compliance among seafarers
This survey research focused on the STCW 1995 and related awareness, attitude and compliance among 232 selected seafarers in the Philippines. Conducted in August 2004, the study utilized three researcher-made data-gathering instruments- the STCW 1995 Awareness Scale, STCW 1995 Attitude Scale, and Seafarer’s Compliance with the STCW 1995 Code Rating Scale. Means, standard deviations, the ttest for independent samples, the One-Way Analysis of Variance, and the Stepwise Multiple Regression Analysis were the statistical tools used. Significance level for all inferential tests was set at .05. The study found out that, generally, the seafarers had “very high” level of awareness of, “neutral” attitude towards, and “above average” compliance with the requirements of the STCW 1995 Convention.
Ten years ago, maritime education and training in Ireland was seriously under-resourced. Cork Institute of Technology, as the designated national centre for maritime education and training, was responsible for seafarer training for the Merchant Marine. The Irish Naval Service, in addition to its military obligations, had an ongoing need to provide similar training for its personnel. In discharging their responsibilities each of those entities aimed to implement a range of multi-disciplinary training programmes designed to produce skilled seafarers, qualified to international standards. But neither organisation had the requisite scale of technical facilities or equipment needed to satisfy the growing aspirations under STCW 95. The solution was found in a partnership agreement between Cork Institute of Technology and the Naval Service, to establish a national centre for the conduct of common maritime training. The Irish Government agreed and decided that the new National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI), should be funded and managed under a Public Private Partnership model.
