Engine Cadets with and Without Additional Training on Training Vessel – Competences Comparison Case Study

Abstract

In the last decade evolution of the requirements for training and professional competences of ship’s crewmembers, including ship engineers can be observed. Despite the implementation of training programs according to IMO requirements in maritime training centres, a different level of competence of young people beginning their professional career on ships in the engine department is observed. The article discusses general conventions, goals, and effects of the “BS Cadet Program” training program, introduced by one of the larger German ship-owner to improve the competencies of crewmembers at the operational level, who will take duties of the watch engineer in the ship engine room soon. General idea of this training program is reducing the time of the path career what is a standard in most shipping companies. Such idea in this program is utilised by directly merging theoretical knowledge with professional practice on special prepared training vessel. The work present also comparison of the acquired knowledge verification results of training participants with the results of engine cadets from last semester of the UMG Faculty of Engineering. The comparison includes computer exercises of Marine equipment and machineries (UNITEST Company – CBT) also genera ship and engine room knowledge checked by written test called “Final Test” carried out on the end of 3 months training.

Using Competency Models in Industrial Enterprises

Abstract

The paper focuses on using competency models in industrial enterprises. This article deals with the theory of competencies, competency models and their utilization. Competency models are a key tool in human resource systems and practice. Managerial competencies enable employees to achieve results, thereby creating value. It follows that managerial competencies aligned with business objectives help foster an organization's success. Organizations must understand their core competency needs - the skills, knowledge, behaviors, and abilities that are necessary for people in key roles to deliver business results. The ability to identify the skills and competencies required for tomorrow’s industry leaders is essential for companies that hope to remain competitive. Identifying appropriate competencies helps senior managers in selecting, developing, and coaching future leaders, as well as mapping career paths and planning management succession.
