MOL Acquires Competence Management System Certification from DNV

April 17, 2012

TOKYO—Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL) announced the certification of its own seafarer education and training program by Oslo-based Det Norske Veritas (DNV).

The MOL Rank Skill Training and Evaluation Program (MOL Rank STEP) received DNV certification for compliance with the Competence Management System (CMS) on April 13.

CMS is a management system which improves education programs by identifying gaps between the skills seafarers currently possess and the qualifications needed to fulfill the corporate philosophy.

The program also complies with Society of International Gas Tanker & Terminal Operator Ltd (SIGTTO*1) and Tanker Officer Training Standard (TOTS*2) requirements.

MOL adopted the MOL Rank STEP Program in 2007.

MOL strives to train seafarers, who will help it become “the world leader in safe Operation,” by continually reviewing and operating its seafarer education program.
