The programmes conducted by TMI is an initiative born out of the requirement of STCW 1978 (as amended), which mandates that structured training methodology be incorporated into all the shipboard training of Merchant Marine Officers. TMI has therefore developed programmes which are approved by DG Shipping and conducted through “Distance Learning Mode”.
Distance Learning meets the challenge of matching the best practices in education to the training of human resources without the compulsion of physically bringing together students and teachers. This goes beyond the realm of correspondence courses, which merely serve to deliver study material and unsophisticated evaluation components to students. In the maritime context, it facilitates the fusion of theoretical learning and real world practicality for shipboard training.
Educational curricula are designed and continuously upgraded by the Maritime Domain Experts of TMI in line with the latest development. Successful completion of a programme qualifies a student to appear for their respective Certificate of Competency Examination.
