Introduction

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) supports the implementation of automated electronic data exchange from ship to ship and ship to shore to increase efficiency,  safety and security of maritime navigation and communications.

With the increasing use of systems with embedded software on ships and mobile offshore platforms, cybersecurity is becoming critical not only for data protection, but also for reliable operations.

The maritime environment is not immune to the radical ability of modern digital communications and computing to be disruptive. In order to gain the advantages of modern technology those operating in the maritime must also become aware and develop strategies to handle the inevitable security issues that modern computing systems bring with them.

IMSSEA developed an e-learning course for crews and shore staff to raise awareness and establishing new competences concerning cybersecurity, about threats and countermeasures.

The course meets the need to strengthen cybersecurity in maritime environment and to protect workers, cargoes, passengers, vessels, environment and your company against cybersecurity threats.

Introduction

This online course, based on academic knowledge from researches and statistical science, is aimed at giving the attendants a short but complete overview of advanced techniques in carrying out systematic approach on accident prevention. It provides, thanks to the flexible mean of the e-learning, an insight of the core requirements when conducting accident prevention, support to the attendants in the field and the goals of enhancing the safety by reducing the number of accidents and incidents. The course provides how to conduct the systematic accident prevention by using the accident model, statistical science, risk management and the PDCA cycle (the core of the Safety Management System) while visualizing the weakness of a system. Characteristics of each types of accidents are divulged by using statistics. Visualization of the weakness in the system is performed by the accident model, the weakness is rectified by the risk reduction method, and then past performance is incorporated into future improvements. The course has been realized by a partnership between IMSSEA and Koji Fukuoka (JP), Ph.D Master Mariner.

Objectives

The course aims to introduce attendants to the systematic approach on accident prevention in order to reduce the number of marine accidents and incidents, resulting in a safer world without accidents.
The course is based on and referred to academic knowledge from researches and principles of quality management system which has already demonstrated effectiveness in other fields.

Entry standards

The course is open to all those interested in the subject, especially ship owners, ship managers and maritime officials and students, even if it has been conceived for officials from maritime administrations responsible for the accident prevention, or who may be planning to undertake such responsibilities. Knowledge of the scientific accident investigation, risk management and the Safety Management System is preferable. A good working knowledge of the English language is required.

Introduction

This online course, based on IMO Model course 3.11, is aimed at giving the attendants a short but complete overview of fundamentals in carrying out investigations into marine casualties and incidents. It provides, thanks to the flexible mean of the e-learning, an insight of the core requirements when conducting casualty investigations, support to the investigators in the field and the investigation goals. The course refers to the most recent academic knowledge rose from researches and it has been developed in compliance with IMO requirements. The course has been realized by a partnership between IMSSEA and Mr. Koji Fukuoka (JP), Ph.D Master Mariner.

 

Objectives

 The course aims to introduce attendants to the scientific accident investigation, analysis and preventions in order to reduce the number of marine accidents and incidents, resulting in a safer world without accidents.

The course is based on and referred to IMO model course 3.11 (SAFETY INVESTIGATION INTO MARINE CASUALTIES AND MARINE INCIDENTS) and academic knowledge from researches.

 

Entry standards

The course is open to all those interested in the subject, even if it has been conceived for officials from maritime administrations and marine investigative bodies responsible for the investigation of marine casualties and incidents, or who may be planning to undertake such responsibilities. It may represent also a perfect introduction to the IMSSEA MAIP class course (see Annex 6). A good working knowledge of the English language is also required.
