Employers across various industries are now incorporating seafarer's level of soft skills into their crewing decisions. The Soft, "non-technical skills" are increasingly important on board due to the rapidly changing workforce and automation of technical tasks. Additionally, maritime accident investigations indicate that a lack of soft skills and human error is the most common reason behind accidents at sea.

Flexibility involves the capacity to adjust quickly and calmly to deal with changes efficiently. It constitutes openness to new ideas and working styles and coping when things do not go as planned.

This course presents the perfect opportunity for you as a seafarer to be proactive and showcase that you are ready to meet the industry's modern-day demands.
