Cybersecurity has a huge potential to affect the safety of the crew, vessel, cargo and even ports. Cybersecurity is concerned with the protection of IT systems, onboard hardware and sensors and data leak from unauthorised access, manipulation and disruption. Cybersecurity policies and plans cover different types of risks like information integrity, system and hardware availability on board and in the office of the shipping company. Accordingly, Cybersecurity should be seen at all levels of the company, from top management onshore to onboard personnel, as an integral part of the safety culture required for the safe and efficient operation of a ship.
Piracy is no longer just a matter of gangs entering your vessel in the middle of the night. The threat of cyber space is building up rapidly with the potential of posing even bigger risks, also for the crews. Therefore, maritime Cyber Security training is critical for your safety.

The Entry into Enclosed Spaces Course has been developed in accordance with SSM highly experienced lecturers using our unique Training Polygon. The training is intended to meet the
requirements set out in The Merchant Shipping (Entry into Dangerous Spaces) Regulations 1988, IMO Resolutions A.864 (20) and the Code of Safe Working Practices for Merchant Seamen. The regulations come into force for ships to which the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention 1974 applies, on the 14 May 2022 and for other ships including fishing vessels, on the 14 May 2023.

On successful course completion learners will be equipped to:


  •  Strict following of ISM Code
  •  Recognize potential dangerous enclosed spaces onboard a vessel
  •  Complete a typical enclosed space entry Permit to Work
  •  Carry out safe testing of an atmosphere prior to entry using typical industry test equipment, including knowledge of its maintenance & testing / calibration requirements
  •  Carry out a safe enclosed space entry
  •  Carry out self-rescue from an enclosed space
  •  Carry out the role of a safety attendant



The video explains:

1)The pre-entry Checks/Procedures to be followed while entering into enclosed space
2) The various gas analysis for enclosed space entry
3) Importance and procedures of filling up Enclosed space entry Permit
4) Communication procedures during enclosed space entry
5) Various emergency equipment to be kept on standby at the entry point
6) Breathing devices used for enclosed space entry
7) Securing procedure after enclosed space entry

We attended the Career Day event that took place at the Maritime Faculty hall on April 18 in Split .

The goal of this event was to enable direct communication for students (nautical, marine engineering, electrical engineering and information technologies, maritime management and maritime technologies of yachts and marinas) with potential future employers.

The employers had the opportunity to briefly present the company’s profile, to describe the possible to the students future careers in the industry, but also to find potential talents for work.




We are always going further to provide the best training to our attendants. One of the newest highlights in long list of simulators is Dual Fuel Engine Simulator, which arrival we are eager to await, as it is one of the most modern simulators in training for seafarer.

Simulator presents a real-time capable simulation model for dual fuel operated engines. The computational performance is reached by an optimized filling and emptying modeling approach applying tailored models for in-cylinder combustion and species transport in the gas path. The highly complex process will take the   place combining Diesel and Otto burning process.

This training course will be supervised with highly experienced and educated instructors.



We are proud to present our upgraded GMDSS equipment.

With instructor and student workplaces, imitating SAILOR GMDSS equipment.

Software version Transas 4100, Full Mission type.
Linked to Transas 4000 Bridge Simulator, Transas 4000 Engine Room Simulator and LCHS Simulator. Upgraded in November 2022.

The International Federation of Transport Workers (ITF) has published on its website the advice of the World Health Organization for the protection of Corona Virus:

Advice for the maritime industry, seafarers and dock workers

Do not restrict embarkation/disembarkation of seafarers in non-affected ports

Do not restrict necessary ship visits by port agents, chaplains, service personnel and others.

Do not visit food markets in China and avoid provision of fish and poultry in China.

Do not consume raw eggs, milk, meat.

Observe strict food hygiene to avoid cross contamination

Ensure facial protection is provided for all crew (5 pieces /per person)

Provide influenza vaccination, alcohol-based hand sanitiser and facial protection for ship inspectors and other crew who travel to China.

If a crew member on board falls sick and has been travelling to affected areas 2-12 days before embarkation, the person must stay in his/her cabin.

If a crew member is sick on board a ship, fill out the maritime declaration of health and notify the relevant port authority and consult a healthcare provider in the next port.

Advice for crew members:

Encourage all onboard to practice hand and respiratory hygiene especially when coughing or sneezing.

Crew should use hand sanitizer/wash hands following contact with any passenger or other crew.

If on a layover in a country with a known coronavirus outbreak, crew are advised to remain in hotel accommodation as much as possible and practice hand and respiratory hygiene and safe food practices (see more below).
