Maritime Resource Management Course – 7700 UAH

Course Name:
Maritime Resource Management Course 



The Maritime Resource Management (MRM) course was developed by a consortium consisting of aviation representatives, maritime administrations, shipping companies and marine insurers with the purpose of combating ‘human errors’ in accidents at sea. Today, the further development of the course takes place in cooperation between all MRM training providers with The Swedish Club Academy at the coordinating party. Combining the STCW requirements related to resource management, leadership, teamwork and managerial skills to support the introduction of non-technical skills. The MRM course is designed to minimize the risk of incidents by encouraging safe and responsible behavior. It aims to foster positive attitudes favoring good personal communication, excellence in leadership skills and compliance with operating procedures. It is these specific training issues – sometimes referred to as human factors training, soft skills training or non-technical training.

The MRM course is:

  • changing attitudes – not skills;
  • focusing on crews as intact teams, not a collection of competent individuals;
  • addressing crew member attitudes and behavior;
  • utilizing case studies and human interaction to change attitudes;
  • to motivate the team to change its behavior to good resource management practices during everyday operations.

The MRM course is rather increasing the tendency, or willingness, to apply the skills than teaching the skills. An important part of the course is case studies of real accidents and incidents with analysis using  ‘MRM terminology’. In MRM training, facilitation is the technique primarily used.
