2023 MarTID Survey Launched

The fifth annual MarTID survey has been launched to continue the study of global maritime training practices. Separate surveys are available until 31 August 2023 for seafarers, ship operators, and maritime education and training institutions.

MarTID – the global Maritime Training Insights Database – is designed to provide a global picture of maritime training that is not currently available, offering the global maritime community data on current and emerging training trends and techniques, staffing models, training focus areas, training tools, training resource allocation and assessment practices. For very good reasons, vessel operators and maritime training centers are investing in creating best practice and innovative training programmes. However, maritime industry training approaches, successes, and failures are not broadly studied or shared leaving training leaders to their own devices to invent and design their best practice training approach.

The mission of MarTID is to help ensure safe, efficient and sustainable maritime operations on clean oceans through providing the maritime industry with comprehensive data on how it manages and conducts training for shipboard competencies. This includes the effects of drivers, such as technology, on the training. The data is updated annually by means of the global survey providing insights that can lead to enhanced policy-setting, decision-making, benchmarking and operational optimization by industry and regulatory authorities at all levels.

The inaugural, 2018 survey focused on collecting a broad set of foundational training data. Since 2019, the surveys and the resulting reports have collected the same set of foundational data tracking annually such metrics as training budgets, training models, staffing for training, the use of technology, major training initiatives, and seafarer demographics. Additionally, for each year, a different theme has been addressed, focusing on an issue of global pertinence and how it is related to training. The annual surveys seek to explore the perspectives of vessel operators/managers, maritime administrators, maritime training experts and seafarers regarding the targeted issue. The 2023 special topic is dedicated to how seafarer training is affected as the industry transitions from fossil fuels to carbon-neutral fuels

MarTID is a non-commercial initiative collaboratively founded in 2017 by the World Maritime University, New Wave Media and Marine Learning Systems. The MarTID  reports are free and distributed widely to reach a global audience. Reports from 2018 to 2021 are available on the Initiative website: www.martid.org. The year 2022 was a review year and no survey/report was issued.

The 2023 MarTID survey is available through 31 August 2023. To take the survey, please visit  www.martid.org.

The MarTID team and the collaborating institutions take this opportunity to thank all respondents of the inaugural survey, and extend gratitude in advance to all respondents of the survey.
