Welcome to the Professional Development Programme in Maritime Welfare (MARI-WEL)
The World Maritime University and the ITF Seafarers’ Trust put together the world-leading experts in the field of seafarer rights, maritime regulations, and welfare issues, to design the first comprehensive programme concerning topics and issues that relate to seafarer welfare. MARI-WEL has been designed to meet the needs of anyone who works with or interacts with seafarers, both onboard and on shore. This includes ship management companies and crewing agencies, port chaplains and welfare providers or anyone with an interest in the welfare of seafarers. MARI-WEL is delivered as a distance learning course, via an innovative online portal consisting of a series of videos, lectures, and activities – enabling participants to follow the programme from anywhere in the world.
In honor of Day of the Seafarer 2020, and in support of seafarers during the COVID-19 pandemic, a 3-hour course on Supporting Seafarers in Stressful Times is now available free of charge. It is open to anyone who wishes to register. To register for the free course, click here.
Enrollment for the full MARI-WEL programme is open and ongoing. You can explore the different topics discussed in the full programme by registering. Group discounts are available. For more info please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
