CLIPPER TRAINS SEAFARERS
Clipper Fleet Management in India has been ISO 29990 certified as Learning Services Provider by Bureau Veritas. The certificate stands for ‘providing learning services to seafarers to enhance their competence and skills through a combination of safety, environment, quality and behavioral facilitation.'
What started out as a necessity and matter of compliance, soon developed beyond the usual requirements, rules and processes. Understanding why something needs to be done in a particular manner raises attention and awareness around the task. We want our seafarers to impact and influence others, to always think of safety first, and to take pride in doing things the right way.
Training needs are typically identified by Clipper’s SQE department or the vessel’s Master and Senior Officers. Our Training Superintendents board the vessels at least once a year to conduct training for crew. Approximately 250 seafarers are trained every year.
Clipper Fleet Management (CFM) received the ISO 29990 certification as one of the first maritime organizations. CFM is the in-house technical department of Clipper, performing technical management for around 30 vessels, bulk and multi-purpose. CFM operates out of Copenhagen and Mumbai, and employs approximately 45 people.
