Train the Trainer - Instructor Assessor Qualification Training

The maritime community standards require that any person conducting training of seafarers which will lead to a certificate being issued, is appropriately trained.


The webinar aims to provide a useful introduction for those with limited teaching experience and introduce new approaches or serve as a reminder of skills and techniques for those who have been teaching for some time. It is not intended to provide a full course of trainee and instructor training.


The webinar is open:

  • To those engaged in the maritime industry, inclusive of the shipping industry and maritime Administrations, and in particular to those individuals who intend to deal as experts on maritime industry issues.
