Maritime Education: A Transfer of Experience

The mainstay of maritime education has been primarily focused on classroom lecture presentation, study and the examination that follows. Questions remain; does this form of education have long lasting effects and will it sufficiently change behavior and understanding to enable the student to perform the new skill properly?

Many of us learn from actual experience, an event that has lasting impact on our perception and application of the task. Sea School says its instructors deliver that very same value-added benefit to the classroom experience. To fundamentally acquire any new skill set, previous experience is the real teacher and guide. The instructor is committed to present the information and also delegated to add previous experience into the delivery, a compound method of mentoring and teaching to give example of the specific situation. What is produced when performed correctly is the beginning stages of understanding and skill development by the student.

Both the student and instructor greatly benefit from this exchange of learning experience, each growing in a positive forward direction to reach seemingly never ending training goals. Yes, the STCW and license requirements are long and arduous, the demands are great but all within reach.

Sea School has been professionally serving mariners for over 35 years, with education, understanding and the capability to pursue their maritime career, the driving force and creator behind this transfer of experience. Sea School practices safe navigation of maritime instruction at all times, expertly utilizing multiple sources of information delivery, exceeding expectations of not only the students but the marine industry collectively served.
