Re-skilling of crew at every level is our guarantee to clients dealing with the disruption of new technology and a global shift towards cleaner fuel
Giving people the knowhow to remain relevant during an era of rapid change, while getting ready for the emerging challenges of low carbon shipping
Shipping enters an era of tumultuous change in which those who go slow embracing new technology and transformation could be left behind. To adopt the changes and put them into practice will require a new mindset as well as skillset. At the same time, the best practices developed over the last four decades of third-party management cannot be discarded altogether. These will have to be kept in perspective while gradually enabling the changes that best suit each individual organization. Our expertise is to ensure that the training packages we design help our people remain a step ahead of the learning curve while delivering superior knowhow to clients at no extra cost.
Navmar works with several top-tier education and training institutions in Europe and Asia to work with state of the art instruction facilities and build continuous learning programmes for our officers, as well as bespoke training modules and simulator-based competency evaluation tests for clients.
As requirements change and new regulations come into play, seafarers need to be prepared for continuous upskilling. Our goal is a lifelong learning programme for our crew in which knowledge and skill receive equal weightage. We are committed to providing our people with every opportunity to pursue personal growth.
Health & Wellbeing
In the post-pandemic world, crew health goes beyond pre-embarkation health-check. Assuring crew of 24/7 emergency healthcare, hospitalisation and preventive healthcare (such as vaccines) are just as important. Moreover, these facilities should be available in spite of movement restrictions hurriedly imposed by the nearest shore administration.
Effective planning saves time and expense that can otherwise drain client resources. An early advocate of the network-centric approach to planning, Navmar employs state-of-the-art tools in all aspects of crew selection, deployment, administration and management, allowing a large number of users to collaborate and make informed decisions.
Crew procurement channels are tenuous and vulnerable to changes in the global situation. Many countries still don’t accord key worker status to seafarers. Our mission is to embed certainty in the transfer of shipboard personnel by working with specialists who can provide alternatives and options that make crew repatriation possible.
Navmar promotes a pro-active cadet induction policy with the aim of protecting our clients from the persistent crew shortages and officer migrations that affect our business. Seafarers are prone to mass migration towards better opportunities. Cadets are our most important component of ensuring continuity in shipboard operations and inculcating lifelong dedication to the fleet and the owner.
Navmar ensures a smooth flow of qualified seafarers with rank and fleet experience to fit all types of vessels by deploying a robust selection procedure responsive to the cost and operational considerations of clients. Such practices allow a competitive edge and a greater degree of certainty in fleet operations.
