Training and Development for employees:

Training and Development for seafarers:

Over the years, the Company has not only acquired expertise in the field of ship management, but in the process, has developed a pool of highly qualified and competent staff, both, on-board and ashore. It is through this dedicated and loyal work force of floating staff, technical superintendents, and internal auditors that the Company has been able to achieve high standards of Safety and Quality in all aspects of ship operations. It is the Company’s policy to encourage and support competent and efficient seafarers and give them the opportunity to grow within the Organization.

All ship officers are required to visit the head office for briefing before being assigned to vessels. Here, they are briefed and updated about new developments and practices in the industry. Regular updates are also sent to the vessels. Officers are often sent to attend value addition courses to enhance their skills. The costs for these courses are borne by the Company.

The Company has introduced a mechanism whereby the officers and crew serving onboard our ships can send in their suggestions to the office. This will encourage the ship-staff to make effective contribution to the shipboard operations and help further improve the Company’s performance.

The Company has provided, on board the vessels, selected video training programs from the best available in the market.

To motivate the junior officers and to keep up with the process of learning while on board, senior officers are asked to actively interact with them. To measure their levels of competency, computer-based competency test facility is provided on board. Based on the results of these tests, officers can determine their weaknesses and work to improve upon on weak areas.

Maritime Training Centre & Bridge Navigation Simulator:

The Company has set up a full-fledged Maritime Training Center at its Head Office in Bangkok which includes a state-of-the-art Bridge Navigation Simulator. The PSL Training Center, which commenced operations in March 2008, has given a solid foundation to the Company’s training activities and has enabled its Officers and Crew to keep abreast of the latest developments in ship operations. The Bridge Navigation Simulator recreates the actual bridge on a ship as it enters a major port and provides ideal conditions in which to train officers and crew in ship-handling and navigation. In the last quarter of 2019, work was commenced to completely upgrade and revamp the Bridge Navigation Simulator including a total renewal of all projectors, panels, consoles, hardware, and the software updated as per the requirements for our fleet.

The upgraded Bridge Navigation Simulator was available in the first quarter of 2020 for resumption of training courses.

The Training Center has developed and continuously improves all training courses, including English courses for marine engineers, navigating officers and crew at all levels. New courses are also being introduced to equip the navigation and engineer officers with the necessary knowledge to deal with new regulations like the global Sulphur cap from January 2020 and new data collection and reporting requirements. To equip the officers with knowledge of new developments, the Company has taken the step of organizing specialized courses conducted by experienced and proficient guest teachers. For instance, a specialized ‘Hydraulics Machinery’ course, customized for our fleet was conducted at the Training Centre in January 2020.

The PSL Maritime Training Center is a significant step taken by the Company to train and equip its Officers and Crew to take better care of themselves and their ships, all with a view to ensure Safety of the Crew and preventing accidents, thus preserving the environment.

During the year 2022 with the Covid-19 pandemic showing little signs of relenting, we continued to train our officers online. A total of 1,021 sea going officers and crew members attended a total of 18 courses that were conducted during the year, which is a testament to the Company’s commitment towards training our crew members and the high premium that we place on the same.

A total of 18 courses were conducted online, while 4 courses which required the use of the Bridge Simulator and ECDIS equipment, were conducted at the company’s Maritime Training Centre. New courses that were introduced in 2022 were Marine Engine ME-B Control System Standard Operation and an additional course on vessel inspections.
