DNV GL’s Maritime Academy Course “STCW FOR CREWING MANAGERS”- Live Virtual Classroom

Dr. Marina Papaioannou


DNV GL’s  Maritime Academy Hellas is offering on 10 February 2021, a one-day Live Virtual Classroom (09:30 – 17:00) on the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW)  for crew managers.  


This module reflects the tasks and responsibilities of personnel management in shipping companies and crewing agencies who need to have a deep understanding of the training and certification requirements of the seafarers employed in order to choose the best qualified personnel.

This objective is achieved by exploring and discussing the detailed requirements of STCW. Firstly the requirements sorted by rank will come under close examination. The training contents and the resulting certificates will be evaluated in more detail.

Then some more general questions relating to familiarisation and training on board will also be raised and clarified.

This course includes practical case studies and interactive exercises to achieve the desired learning outcome for the participants.

Course Objective

Participants who already have a basic knowledge about the Standards for Training and Certification Convention (STCW), as amended, will gain a deeper understanding of it from a crewing perspective. At the end of the course participants will be able to identify required certificates by rank as well as other implications arising of the STCW Convention and Code.

In addition both general and specific training and familiarisation requirements for seafarers will be identified and discussed.
