Rules alone do not make training effective. It requires the dedication, interest and skills of everyone involved: shore managers; senior officers on board; trainers and trainees. Maritime Training On Board, based upon the experience of managers and trainers over many years, is an essential tool in making training more effective, enjoyable and rewarding for all.


This fully revised Fifth Edition incorporates both the recent technological advances to the delivery of training both on board and ashore, as well as the 2010 Amendments to the Manila Convention, which entered into force in 2012. Practical and concise, it includes chapters on evaluation and assessment, advice for Masters trainers and trainees, as well as the guiding principles and theories behind maritime training.


This book is an important guide to the fundamental issues that underpin all forms of training, and helps to ensure that managers, trainers and trainees make the best use of education and training opportunities on board.
