The 2010 ’Manilla’ amendments to the STCW convention introduced, for the first time, a requirement for management and leadership training for all ships officers. These courses are designed to promote the skills needed to lead an organisation.
They are also aimed at those not following the officer career path but are working in a role that has an impact on the delivery of on board or shore based operations.
These courses address the following questions.
How do successful managers weld the teams in their charge together into an effective whole?
How best to communicate your goals to others?
How to get the best out of each individual taking into account their capabilities and their training needs?
Using lectures and case studies and also team exercises, which form part of the assessment, these courses are designed to encourage you to think about how to build a safe and effective team.
