Introducing free maritime training videos, developed to address the gaps in Maritime Education and Training (MET) standards.

As part of this project, OCEAN partner The Nautical Institute was tasked with researching gaps that could be filled, bridging minimum standards with examples from organisations and companies demonstrating excellent safety performance.

These 7 maritime training videos are more than just another resource. They are practical tools designed to raise awareness of navigation best practices, providing better support to mariners through enhanced situational awareness. Click to download the Consent Form and Project Outline (PDF).
