Crewing & Training
Our seafarers are our most valuable resource. For over twenty five years our main source for seafarers is the Philippines, where we established our presence in 1990.
Today Intership not only sources its crew through the group-owned manning agency, but we have also established our own training centre – ISNTC. The training center was established in 1992 and has since trained hundreds of cadets as well as provided courses to our seafarers and those of other owners.
Intership Navigation Training School (ISNTC) operates sophisticated bridge and engine simulators and maintains an extensive range of deck and engine equipment for hands-on training, which includes a full-scale mooring station and the only genuine ship’s crane available in the Philippines. A fully operational engine room allows real-time training for engineers and engine ratings. The center furthermore includes a dormitory for up to 70 crew.
To complement the training taking place at ISNTC, an extra deck on two of our cape-size ships accommodates training facilities and living quarters for officer trainees. These include a bridge simulator on MV Lancelot and an engine simulator and classroom on MV Percival.
ISNTC has been certified by Germanischer Lloyd for compliance with ISO 9001. ISNTC conducts courses in compliance with the IMO requirements, particularly STCW, ISM and MLC. The training school is recognized by the Philippine authorities as a professional training institution and has obtained several flagstate approvals for their courses.
Our investment in training is making it possible that we now have masters and chief engineers on our ships who joined us 12-15 years ago as cadets.
Our continued commitment to training saw the establishment of the Hartmann e-learning web portal in 2011, which currently has over 5000 registered users. This initiative offers sea going and office personnel, as well as other Hartmann Group company employees, access to over 100 e-courses online.
