The Nautical Institute launches CPD


A major initiative aimed at helping maritime professionals develop their careers and meet future industry requirements for personnel was launched today (Thursday) in London by The Nautical Institute (NI).

The continuing professional development (CPD) scheme developed by the NI is aimed at helping retention of seafarers and ensuring that they can further their careers at sea and ashore.

The industry has estimated that the shortfall of officers could reach 83,900 by 2012, against fleet requirements and has initiated campaigns to attract recruits – not least the Go to Sea campaign backed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
