  • Our training philosophy

    It is a basic principle of Maersk Training that being prepared for challenges improves safety and productivity. At Maersk Training, we train people to be prepared so that they can handle real life situations. We strive to provide a better learning experience. The goal is to achieve the highest learning level from a training session – use what you learn and you will improve your performance and safety behaviour.

    Learning by experience

    Learning is better retained when it is put into use. Our training is about more than theory – it is based on methods that involve people and bring knowledge into operation. This philosophy goes for both the classroom and for practical training.

    Training for your own reality

    The true value of training is demonstrated in the real working environment. We make sure that our training is as close and relevant to your working environment as possible. The experience of our trainers, our flexibility and dialogue with our clients are important tools.

    The right training for the right needs

    Respecting our clients' training investment means providing the training that meets their needs. No more, no less. For this reason, aligning expectations, defining exact needs and targeting training to meet those needs are important parts of the process.

    A benchmark for others

    “Maersk Training has set the benchmark for other training establishments to aspire to.” This statement was the essence of the evaluation that certified Maersk Training as the first DNV SeaSkill Centre of Excellence by Det Norske Veritas (DNV).

    Simulator training – turning theory into practice

    Simulators may not be relevant in all our training but we aim to involve real life scenarios wherever possible. Maersk Training leads the way in developing simulators and programmes that move training closer to our clients' working environment, preparing people for on-site situations.
