right arrow 16 Course Description

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.

Openness to experience involves being comfortable with change, seeking new experiences, being open to new ideas and viewpoints, embracing different cultures, and showing tolerance and understanding of differences in various views.

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.

The course was developed based on NLP techniques and methods. Principals and examples were based on methodologies and practices from nlpincyprus and nlpgreece.

The “curiosity” factors mentioned in the course are based on the Neurological Levels developed by Robert Dilts.
