ABSTRACT: Maritime transport responsible for as much as 90% of world trade, currently suffers from a shortage of quali-fied officers. The 2010 International Convention on Standards of Training and Watchkeeping (STCW) en-courages the international community to promote employment at sea among young people, especially females. So far, the Cadet Record Book (CRB), based on International Seafarers’ Federation (ISF) requirements is the basic and only document confirming obtaining the required qualifications by cadets to become an officer. Due to the continuous progress of technology and the maritime industry demands, the companies are developing their own (more detailed) cadet training systems. Such solutions enable a more detailed approach to training which results in better preparation for future work at sea. In this paper, one such system is presented in detail, which is already in use by one of the company and compares it to present training requirements.
