Smart Shipping: Demand for Training in the Use of Shipboard IT Technologies Increased

There might be a need to bring the smart concept in the shipping industry, but group CEO of Elektrans Group, Capt. Michael P Elwert, is quick to admit that the slow-paced training, or the lack thereof, is costing the industry a new generation of seafarers. When asked if the industry is doing enough to train tech savvy newcomers, during the UAE Maritime Leaders’ Summit, Elwert bluntly said no. “A pure, pure answer to your question is no, we are not doing it well…I think it is something we [the industry] have to recognize we don’t do very well.”
