HELM Course Launched with MCA Approval
The U.K. Enav Center has partnered with Total HLM Solutions to provide Human Element Leadership and Management (HELM) course at Management Level which is in line with the Manila Amendments 2010 at their training center in Hampshire, U.K. The course will be available to the maritime industry from June 10, 2013.
The HELM course is offered at two levels; a five day management level course for Masters and Chief Mates and later in the year a three day operational level course will be launched for newly qualified Officers and Officers under training from all branches.
Having only recently been established by the Merchant Navy Training Board (MNTB) the course profile provides ample opportunity to expand on the leadership, management and human aspects of life both at sea and ashore. Unlike previous courses that encompass the leadership and management arena (Bridge Team Management and Bridge Resource Management), the HELM course also includes engineering officers in its mandate, and focuses on the non-technical aspects of these challenging professions.
