Maritime HR & Training
The progression of the marine sector toward digitization and decarbonization over the last several years has caused a gap between curriculum, syllabus, and course content vs industry expectations, which has had a detrimental influence on employability. On 17th of February 2022, IMRC (International Maritime Research Confluence) hosted a panel with Capt Belal Ahmed (Chairman of IMEC, & MD of Western Shipping based in Singapore), Capt Sankalp Shukla (Chairman of FOSMA), Capt Bhasin (Chairman MASSA, Secretary General CMMI, MD M.sc Crewing Service), and Capt (Dr) Ashutosh Apandkar (Principal of T. S. Rahman), discussing the aforementioned and more issues on Maritime HR and Training that the industry is facing at the moment. This paper covers some topical queries and issues that were discussed and a few solutions for them.
Outcomes of the Session - An overview
Institutes and the industry must focus on faculty development and making faculty prepared with the changing times to impart meaningful education.
Immersive technologies such as virtual reality and augmented reality can be used for training. alongside solid management tools and LMSs are the need of the hour!
Shipping industry is in need of culture and attitude development amongst its seafarers and employees!

Internship and Graduate Programs for unplaced cadets
The lack of competency of graduates in the industry and absence of practical knowledge during their beginning years provides a gap in skill and aptitude of future senior officers. There is urgency for an upskill program for such graduates to match the competitive environment of the industry in today's world. We will soon be releasing project details and partnership opportunities. Email us to register your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org.
