Training and Assessment On Board 4th Ed.

Training On Board was first published in 1991. It described how managers, trainers and trainees could make the best use of education and training opportunities on board. The second edition in 1997 contained more information on assessments – if you cannot measure what is being taught, you do not know how effective your teaching is. The third edition in 2002 included more information on international rules on certification. This fourth edition takes into account the major revision of the International Maritime Organization’s Standards of Training and Watchkeeping in 2010.

Following the terrorist attacks of 11th September 2001, the IMO introduced the International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code as an amendment to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention. It prescribes responsibilities to governments, shipping companies, shipboard personnel and port/facility personnel to “detect security threats and take preventative measures against security incidents affecting ships or port facilities used in international trade.”

Rules alone do not make training effective. It requires the dedication, interest and skill of everyone involved: shore managers; senior officers on board; trainers and trainees. This book, based upon the experience of managers and trainers over many years, aims to make training more effective and enjoyable. Following its advice should make it easier to gain official approval from national administrations.
