Vessel Specific Familiarisation

It is well known that seafarers have to be familiar with several regulations in order to follow up vessel`s tight operational schedule.

In these days after five years of ISM implementation it is clear that many of the problems faced are mainly due to ineffective crew familiarisation with several company or regulatory requirements.



Common problems faced in these days are:

  • Small companies do not have the expertise to properly address the issue of crew training effectively.

  • Training should incorporate a wide range of aspects that in most of the cases are not being addressed.

  • Seafarers flying directly to vessel are not getting any kind of company induction before joining vessel.

  • System for the documentation of training is not effective.
