At its Board Meeting in Amsterdam on 3 October 2013, The Swedish Club decided that insurance members of The Swedish Club shall be offered MRM licences for free for a period of two years. The Club expects that the decision shall help to move the industry forward in its strive for the establishment of effective safety cultures in shipping companies.
The launch date will be 1 January 2014 and both new and existing MRM licensees in the Club’s membership will be entitled to the offer. For more information about this initiative, please click here.
We expect that all training providers in the MRM network shall benefit from this move. There is a large number of different nationalities working on board the ships of Swedish Club members and these members will need assistance to put their seafarers through both initial MRM training and refresher training. So please be well prepared and make sure that you have well-trained and certified MRM Workshop Leaders at your training institutes ready to assist when needed.
