ABSTRACT: This study analyzes the role played by social networks in maritime education and training. The objective of this study is to investigate the shortage of seafarers in maritime global transportation, as mentioned by the BIMCO. The authors divide the processes of maritime education and training into two categories: ?Maritime educational institute? and ?Maritime Company.? These are not systematically connected but are found in the processes between social networks; it has the social networks to both. Therefore, teaching staff members, in their roles as job advisors in ?Maritime educational institutes,? use social networks in conjunction with ?Maritime companies.? The teaching staff members communicate with students using these processes. The teaching staffs are the carriers in regard to how these processes are related. This study surveyed aspects of ?personality? and ?social networks? pertaining to teaching staffs and quantitatively analyzed the processes related to social networks.
