Enhancing maritime education and training
Continuous training is considered nowadays as a key issue for the evolution of people being at professional and personal levels, enhancing productivity, employability, and social stability in a globally competitive world. Furthermore, the introduction of new technologies, the imposition of new regulations in the maritime industry and the growing challenges at port, shipping and logistics level increase the demand for new educational schemes. TrainMoS II was the evolution of the TrainMoS project, improving the existing tools and covering a whole new range of technical and operational topics, including alternative fuels and technologies, logistics and safety issues such as damage control, evacuation and crisis management operations. TrainMoS II covered also the provision of blended vocational education to undergraduates and professionals who belong to different sectors in the multimodal transport chain. Both projects focused on the establishment of an educational framework facilitating the collaboration between industry and academia and used advanced ICT tools to match the maritime market needs with the training provision and to develop new and enriched content for the online platform with learning material and knowledge for both professionals and students. In the present study, the outcomes and experiences gathered from running the aforementioned projects are presented and discussed for their potential impact on the maritime industry.
The purpose of this paper is to propose that the measurement of salivary amylase activity is an effective index to evaluate the stress of a ship navigator for safe navigation training and education. The subjects are real captains who have unlimited licenses and cadets who are senior students at Kobe University, navigation course. Stress is evaluated for several situations where a ship navigator makes a lot of decisions, in this case in a narrow passage, entering a port and leaving a port. Salivary amylase activity occurs when a ship navigator makes a decision regarding ship handling and collision avoidance. The salivary amylase activity registers the stress quickly on the spot. The paper describes an effective index which is useful for evaluating a ship navigator's stress for safe navigation.
