After a flag state has issued a certificate of competence, professionals still need to continue to train, learn and assess their performance. The latest edition of The Nautical Institute’s acclaimed magazine The Navigator examines how navigators can build on their basic competencies while at work. This was reported by the Institute on 2 February.
In this issue, Gilbert Maturan reveals how one maritime company, Teekay, helps its staff maintain competency and explains why it is essential if the mariner is to keep abreast of technical advances. The Nautical Institute also offers advice on why planning is a vital part of achieving greater competency.
