MIMA Talk on "Training of Seafarers Onboard Ships"

Seafarar001

Shipping is vitally important to the global community and plays a key role in sustainable development. The world depends on a safe, secure, and efficient shipping industry. The shipping industry, in turn, relies critically on an adequate and trained supply of seafarers to operate the ships that carry the cargoes safely and expeditiously to the various ports and destinations.

Shipping is also highly technical, demanding considerable skills, knowledge, and expertise. As such, maritime education and training must be of a high and consistent quality. Such training and education must be skill- and competence-based and utilise the latest technology available.

In the latest series of MIMA Talks on ‘Seafarers Training Onboard Ships’, Captain Sukhbir Singh, Principal Assistant Director, Examination Seafarers Competency Unit, Marine Department Malaysia provided a comprehensive overview and updates on training requirements in Malaysia. The industry was well represented at the talk and included the Malaysia Shipowners’ Association (MASA), Association of Malaysia’s Maritime Professionals (IKMAL), and various specialized seafarers education and training institutions.

The talk covered the vital role of the Marine Department Malaysia in continuously informing and updating seafarers, shipping companies, and specialist maritime education and training entities in Malaysia on international and national regulations on training requirements, the means and systems involved, training methodology, the role of ship Masters, ongoing collaborations, and the issue of ship-berths. As a truly international industry, shipping needs specialist education and training establishments to provide a continuous stream of high-calibre personnel.

Organized by MIMA’s Centre for Ocean Law and Policy the talk was in support of ongoing efforts to promote the local shipping industry as envisaged in the Malaysia Shipping Master Plan, NBOS, and TN50. The years ahead will bring new challenges and new opportunities which must be met with new ways of thinking and alignments, and a shift in perspectives and strategies that will deliver the above national aspirations
