Analysis of training programmes and education schemes for skills development on marine transport


The more important and global role the marine transportation has taken nowadays suggests that a larger number of skilled workforce are currently in demand. New technologies and efficient information management create an opportunity for better service, more reliable operation and profit. This paper mainly analyses the current situation with skills development and education schemes for marine transportation in different countries. Statistical data from sample countries was collected and compared through different management levels, education forms and job groups. The conclusions of the paper show that the available training schemes and education programmes for skills development on marine transport are unsatisfactory in the countries under study. For the marine industry to ensure a steady growth in a long run, improvements in the current skills development schemes supported by the deployment and implementation of advanced technology in the future are needed.
