The Swedish Club Academy is celebrating 20 years of Maritime Resource Management (MRM), a spin off from the Bridge Resource Management (BRM), which aims to reduce accidents at sea caused by human error. In 1993, The Swedish Club, together with seven other organizations, developed the latter to serve as the first ever resource management training course for the shipping industry.

The further development of the MRM program was taken over by The Swedish Club Academy from The Swedish Club in 2010. “Today, MRM is available in 35 countries worldwide, with over 100 licensed training providers. We are looking forward to increasing our training providers in the coming years,” says Martin Hernqvist, managing director of The Swedish Club Academy. He adds that The Swedish Club Academy is working on updating the course modules and developing new training platforms which will be made available next year.

In line with the celebration of the 20th year of MRM, The Swedish Club is offering the MRM license free of charge to its insurance members for a period of two years. This campaign is one of the biggest investments in safety made by the Club so far. MRM covers situation awareness, effective communication and assertiveness which are all requirements of the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) Manila Amendments.

“Over the years, MRM has proven to be an efficient and effective tool in establishing a genuine safety culture within an organization,” according to Hernqvist. He hopes that more companies and institutions will take the opportunity and be part of the implementation of the MRM program to achieve the common goal of developing people and organizations for safer shipping. The Academy looks forward, with a positive attitude, to the next 20 years and more.
