Project PRACNAV for a Better on Board Training Curricula
1 Constanta Maritime University, Constanța, Romania
ABSTRACT: During 2008, Constantza Maritime University has developed a project financed with European funds that aims for an increase in the quality of training and the practical skills of the students that will be working in the maritime industry, by organizing and undergoing on board training stages at higher standards. It is expected that once this objective is achieved, there will be a 40% increase in the chances of employment in the shipping companies for the Romanian students. A coherent, modern application of such a program with fully integrated on board training sessions, would ensure a better chance of employment for our students in the European fleet. If the ?equality of chances? principle is considered, the increase of theoretical knowledge by acquiring specific practical skills for those students that undergo PRACNAV, for graduates of female gender an increase of up to 60% in their employment chances is expected as maritime officers on board European ships.
