Shipping is vitally significant to the global community, playing a key role in sustainable development. The world depends upon a safe, secure, and efficient shipping industry, and the shipping industry depends upon an adequate supply of seafarers to manage the ships that carry the essential cargoes we all rely on. Shipping is extremely technical, demanding considerable skill, knowledge, and experience from those that work in it. And it's impossible to learn everything on the job. As a truly international industry, shipping needs a global network of specialized education and training institutions to ensure a continuing stream of high caliber recruits.
Maritime education and training must be of high and consistent quality, throughout the world. They must be skills-based, competence-based and utilize the most recent technology - like simulators reflecting modern ships and up-to-date bridge layouts. But maritime education and training aren't just for seafarers. Maritime education needs broad coverage. Naval architecture, marine engineering, maritime law, and several other fields all require specialist training. IMO has a long and wide-ranging involvement in the human element of shipping. Maritime education and training are fundamental to its work in this area. The 1978 international standardization on Standards of Training, Certification, and control for Seafarers has set the international benchmark for seafarer training and education.
Compliance with its standards is vital for serving on board ships. Significant amendments to the Convention were adopted in 2010 in Manila. However much remains to go. Of the parties to ensure effective implementation by the end of the transition period on January 1, 2017. Looking at the wider spectrum, IMO's Integrated Technical Cooperation Program provides a capacity-building framework to assist developing nations to improve the skills and proficiencies needed for effective compliance with IMO instruments. This, together with IMO's global maritime training institutions, the World Maritime University and the International Maritime Law Institute, helps maintain a flow of high-level managers, policymakers along with other key personnel.
We're very proud of those institutions, and of the many graduates, they've produced who now hold positions of liability and influence inside the maritime community. The human element - In the future, the human element in shipping will be increasingly important, not just for numerous reasons, but additionally as the industry moves towards ever higher standards of safety, environmental impact, and sustainability. Further efforts must be made to bring new generations to navigation as a profession. Seafaring must be seen to appeal to new generations as a rewarding and fulfilling career. It's impossible to overstress how important this is. Without a quality labor force, motivated, trained, and skilled to the appropriate international standards, shipping can't thrive.
Now, you are about to sail. All your dreams come true. But, there is a step ahead. We all have a guide for the first time.
So, the first thing you have to assist a well-experienced sailor before your first sail. And this will help you to be a better sailor.
Now, the ship is yours. All your destiny is here. You are all set to sail a real ship.
