We were delighted to welcome @RNLI Irish Trainers to the #NMCI earlier this month to complete STCW PST training. We look forward to supporting the future training needs of the #RNLI volunteer lifeboat crews, who work tirelessly to save lives at sea throughout Ireland & the UK.

World Maritime Day 2015

Posted: July 6, 2015

 World Maritime Day – September 24th 2015

The theme for this year’s IMO World Maritime Day, which will be celebrated in September 2015, is “Maritime Education & Training”. This is very timely since the end of 2015 will see the completion of the next comprehensive update on the worldwide supply and demand for seafarers, the major project which ICS conduct every 5 years in conjunction with BIMCO. The 2015 report should reveal how recruitment and training has been affected since the downturn, during a period in which the size of the world fleet has nevertheless expanded considerably.

 The World Maritime Day theme for 2015 is  “Maritime education and training”. 

The theme was adopted to focus attention on  the wider spectrum of maritime education and training, in particular its adequacy and quality, as the bedrock of a safe and secure shipping industry, which needs to preserve the quality, practical skills and competence of qualified human resources, in order to ensure its sustainability.
The 1978 STCW Convention and Code, as amended, set the  international benchmark for the training and education of seafarers.  While compliance with its standards is essential for serving on board  ships, the skills and competence of seafarers, and indeed, the human  element ashore, can only be adequately underpinned, updated and  maintained through effective maritime education and training. 
World Maritime Day will be celebrated at IMO Headquarters on  Thursday, 24 September 2015, but other events and activities focusing on maritime education​ and training will be held throughout the year.  Member Governments, the maritime industry and training centres are invited to organize their own events to support the theme.  The World Maritime Day Parallel Event will be held in Japan on 20 and 21  July 2015 (Please click here for the Parallel Event website​).
