HELMEPA’s New Voluntary Refresher Training Program for 2014
HELMEPA΄s new 2014 Voluntary Refresher Training Program commences on January 21. Aiming at the widest possible coverage of the training needs of seafarers and member companies, the Program curriculum was devised in close consultation between the Association’s Maritime Section and the Training Committee, which is comprised of experts from 12 of HELMEPA΄s member companies.
Having as its title the theme selected by the IMO for "World Maritime Day 2014", "IMO Conventions:
Effective Implementation", this year΄s Program includes the following 4 two-day seminar categories:
1. Beyond Compliance; Promoting a Safety Culture
2. Keeping abreast of Requirements; Ensuring Effective Environmental Management
3. Marine Environmental Awareness (ΜΕΑ)
4. Risk Management in Shipboard Operations
The seminars of category (1) and (2) give ship΄s officers and land-based staff of Member Companies the opportunity to better implement the International Conventions MARPOL and SOLAS, which ensure a constant high quality of ship operations. The Marine Environmental Awareness (MEA) Seminar, which was developed according to the IMO Model Course of the same title and officially recognized by the Cyprus Flag, responds to specific requirements of the amended STCW and Code (Α-ΙΙ/1,2 και Α-ΙΙΙ/1,2).
The Seminar Risk Management in Shipboard Operations, which was successfully introduced the last quarter of 2013, has been further enriched so as to assist officers to identify and evaluate hazards stemming from shipboard operations in order to reduce accident likelihood.
