In the Global Marine Training Centre, our mission is to develop and deliver high-quality maritime training in response to the emerging needs of our partners in international shipping.
We are working closely with the international shipping community to understand its learning needs and respond with specific training material. We continue to transfer the knowledge gained from our long-standing consolidated tradition in the field of ship classification into training and are actively present where the international maritime regime is decided so can promptly inform our clients of the latest developments. We have established synergies with academic institutions and high-technology partners for the development of premium training and are engaged in research and innovation to constantly enrich our training material with findings from these activities.
Our portfolio embraces traditional and new marine training topics across nine thematic areas. Traditional courses aim to serve the training requests arising from the high safety, security and environmental standards that are always required from shipping. New training topics are offered to assist in keeping pace with the rapid technology changes and growing environmental agenda of international shipping. Courses are available in physical and virtual classroom environments as well through e-learning (asynchronous training). Subject to the specific request, tailored courses can be developed and offered in-house. We use new educational methods that can radically improve the practicality and efficacy of training tools, while, at the same time, requiring less resources from the training recipient.
