About the Course

The International Maritime Organisation (IMO) announced in the Maritime Safety Committees (MSC) and the legal committee (LC) meetings the triggering of an exercise for all member states towards the implementation of the four degrees of the Marine Autonomous Surface Ship (MASS) and to find the changes that might occur to the IMO instruments if needed with a target date for completing this exercise was set at 2022. The Global researchers found Autonomous vessels feasible for implementation in terms of hazard identification and corresponding risk control options as proof that automation started to invade the Marine industry, with the world’s biggest automated container terminal starting its operation in Shanghai in 2017.

Consequently, Manpower in the marine industry needed to be prepared for the changes that might happen towards the presence of (MASS) among other vessels. This training will help them prepare for new education and proficiency requirements to find opportunities to work with the privilege of always being one step ahead and expecting the outcomes of this technology.

This Introduction to Marine Autonomous Surface Ship (MASS) training course identified the changes that could happen in the Maritime Industry to cope with the existence of MASS technology by facing many challenges. For instance, those challenges are technical, operational, traffic control, regulatory, and security challenges. In five days, training cover and identify the latest stages in the industry towards implementing MASS in operational and security challenges. In addition, the link between MASS and other Global objectives such as sustainability.

Core Objectives

The delegates will achieve the following objectives:

  • Understand the importance of the MASS
  • Awareness of the time frame for the Implementation of the MASS
  • Know the Marine industry preparedness for MASS
  • Understand how to develop yourself as a seafarer to deal with the new technology
  • Know how to implement MASS in ports and the best type of cargo and energy to be used and where
  • Learn the relation between technology education and sustainability objectives
  • Understand the safety and security challenges towards the implementation
  • Identify the requirements from all interested parties for the implementation
Training Approach

This training course will utilise various proven learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes discussion and lectures using international best practices, practical applications, exercises and case studies.
