To start, the 2019 report was themed to impressive) 26.7%, it is. examine more closely the impact autonomy in the maritime space will have on training initiatives for current and future seafarers. In addition, the 2019 survey features three sections dedicated to insights from ship owner/operators, seafarers and marine training institutions.
While the full survey results are analyzed and ? nalized, here we offer a sneak look at some of the de? ning trends that ‘FULL AUTONOMY’ is more than a have emerged: generation away.

Around 60% of operators and 68% of METIs expect further increases in their training budget for the coming year. • Interestingly, more than 68% of seafarers have in-

Taking a look at operators in particular, a majority plan to increase their usage of e-learning, both internet- based and video-based. A majority of vessel operators also plan to increase their employment of mentoring and coaching.
