Course focused on safety and security fields

The Upskilling Programme (UP) is part of the “Advanced Skills in Safety, Environment and Security at Sea – ASSESS” project, approved and co-funded in the framework of the Call Blue Careers in Europe and launched by DG Mare.

The Upskilling Programme provides additional expertise in the safety and security fields, with respect to on-board personnel, infrastructure and the environment, and focuses on two specific training profiles: safety and security manager and environmental manager.

The Upskilling Programme addresses to both employed and unemployed professionals who have already developed technical skills and capabilities in maritime safety, the environment and security at sea.

The aim of the course is to supplement the lack of professional profiles with skills concerning a multidisciplinary and integrated approach to the evaluation, certification and regulatory aspect of the product in terms of safety and security, active and passive (entirety of ship and load, environmental sustainability).
