Training is one of the key pillars within BSM in ensuring that our service exceeds the expectations of our customers and that ships under our management perform to the highest standards.
We continuously invest in training and career development of our staff on board and ashore.
BSM has its own network of wholly owned, state of the art Maritime Training Centres, located in Cyprus, China, India, the Philippines, Poland and Ghana. Our training philosophy is to ensure that all personnel employed by BSM are trained to be fully competent in the duties they perform and prepared for the next step in their careers. Our quality training system, based on continuous professional development, comprises a progressive mix of theoretical and practical training. Simulators, workshops and facilitated discussions all play their part in our blended learning approach, which is delivered both ashore and on board.
Land-based training replicates the on board environment that seafarers encounter during their duties, including gas and safety management courses and practical sessions on advanced bridge, cargo handling, engine and LNG simulators based on the latest technologies.
As a responsible employer in the marine industry, BSM is committed to the future development of seafarers and has an extensive cadet sponsorship programme in place. BSM recruits cadets from selected and approved maritime academies all over the world.
Subject to acceptable performance, the company financially supports their studies and provides them with extensive training onboard diverse vessel types, providing a holistic maritime training experience.
