THE STANDARS OF TRAINING, CERTIFICATION and WATCHKEEPING

Statistics revealed that worldwide, an average of 200 ships and hundreds of lives are lost every year as a consequence of sea disasters. They are either caused by natural calamities or brought about by negligence and dearth of knowledge and skills by seafarers manning the ships.
