The MarTID reports are free and distributed widely on the MarTID website to reach a global audience. The surveys draw on insights from shipowners and operators, maritime education and training institutions and seafarers.
MarTID – the global Maritime Training Insights Database is designed to provide a global picture of maritime training that is not available elsewhere, 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 in 2017 by the World Maritime University, Marine Learning Systems and New Wave Media.
The objective 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. The data, updated annually by means of global surveys, will provide insights that can lead to enhanced policy-setting, decision-making, benchmarking and operational optimization by industry and regulatory authorities at all levels.
