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. MarTID is a non-commercial initiative collaboratively founded by the World Maritime University, New Wave Media and Marine Learning Systems. The MarTID reports are therefore free and distributed widely to reach a global audience.
The mission of MarTID is to help ensure safe, efficient and sustainable maritime operations on clean oceans. It will do so by providing the maritime industry with comprehensive data on how it manages and conducts training for shipboard competencies and the effects of drivers, such as technology, on this training. This data, updated annually by means of a global survey, will provide insights that can lead to enhanced policy-setting, decision-making, benchmarking and operational optimization by industry and regulatory authorities at all levels.
