The maritime industry, like any other, faces its share of challenges.

When it comes to training, maritime stakeholders say their largest challenge is a lack of financial resources, according to the Maritime Training Insights Database (MarTID) 2018 Training Practices Report.

Other top challenges include a shortage of competent and dedicated training personnel as well as the procurement and availability of specific training courses.

Looking forward, the industry has its eye on other top training challenges. Rapid digitalization and technological advancement as well as a lack of qualified training personnel were placed ahead of financial constraints as the greatest training challenges anticipated in the years ahead.
