Courses

Assisted by contributions from various Governments, IMO has designed the series of courses to help implement this Convention following the adoption of the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watch keeping for Seafarers, (STCW), 1978, as amended, and, further, to facilitate access to the knowledge and skills demanded by increasingly sophisticated maritime technology.

Consequent to the adoption of the Manila Amendments in 2010 to the STCW Convention and Code, some of the model courses related to the STCW Convention and Code are being revised and updated. MHL & UMA regularly conduct a wide range of 'mandatory' and other short-courses for the maritime industry. The contents of these courses, where required, meet the STCW 2010 Manila Amendment requirements and the completion of some of these courses is a pre-requisite for issue of certificates of competency (CoC).

Our aim is to train Deck Officers & Marine Engineers to obtain the specialized marine certificates which qualify them to work on board ships and carriers of all types according to the requirements of the international Maritime Organization (IMO) and the international convention on standards of training, Certification and watch keeping convention for seafarers(STCW95) as amended.
