To reach these goals, trainers need to be able to educate and train students in the competency based system, which serves two purposes: defining minimum key competencies needed for crew members on board maritime and IWT vessels throughout the EU or worldwide, and thereby improving safety of navigation at sea and on the European interconnected waterways, and an increased level of labour mobility for crew members educated with the competencies as laid down in STCW 2010 and the new European directive.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.14.03.06}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Inland Shipping, Inland Navigation, Education in Maritime Navigation, Education in Inland Navigation, Operational Level (OL), Management Level (ML), STCW 2010 Manila Amendments , Inland Waterways} }
