The Swedish Club Academy is celebrating 20 years of Maritime Resource Management (MRM), a spin off from the Bridge Resource Management (BRM), which aims to reduce accidents at sea caused by human error. In 1993, The Swedish Club, together with seven other organisations, developed the latter to serve as the first ever resource management training course for the shipping industry.
Taking a major step forward by making its biggest investment in safety, The Swedish Club is determined in putting safety first by offering the Maritime Resource Management licence to its members free for a period of two years. This initiative will take effect from 1 January 2014 and is expected to gain positive impact in the maritime industry. For more information, click here
