Maritime Resource Management (MRM) accredited by the Swedish Club

The Maritime Resource Management course meets the requirements laid down in the IMO International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, 1978, as amended by the Manila Amendments, in the following areas:

  • Table A-II/1 (Bridge resource management and Application of leadership and teamworking skills)
  • Table A-II/2 (Use of leadership and managerial skill)
  • Table A-III/1 (Engine-room resource management and Application of leadership and teamworking skills)
  • Table A-III/2 (Use of leadership and managerial skill)

The MRM course is designed to minimise the risk of incidents by encouraging safe and responsible behaviour. It aims to foster positive attitudes favouring good personal communication, excellence in leadership skills and compliance with operating procedures.

MRM is ideal for deck and engineering officers, together with maritime pilots and shore-based personnel. The objective is to ensure that sound resource management practices underpin everyday operations. The principles covered include:

  • Recognition of the significance of consistent good management and teamwork
  • A willingness to change behaviour in a positive direction
  • Awareness of the importance of using a common terminology

The course features a series of workshops delivered by carefully selected and trained workshop leaders. Errors and hazardous behaviour are analysed in a dynamic group situation and actual incidents and accidents are explored from a MRM perspective. The workshops are supported by computer based training modules that examine human interaction and management situations influencing the accident event.
Refresher courses are recommended to ensure permanent, positive attitude changes.
