Tien Quoc Le


Vietnam is located on the normal arterial maritime route between the Indian Ocean and the Pacific Ocean, between Europe, the Middle East, China and Japan with regional countries. In the context of the industrial revolution 4.0 and the deeper integration of Vietnam's economy into the global economy, Vietnam's maritime industry is increasingly developing and deepening international integration. The rapid development of the domestic fleet and the labour export service of seafarers are setting out for our maritime schools the opportunity to train crew members. Improvement of training program for seafarers are considered an urgent issue, which is also a prerequisite for contributing to the development of the maritime industry actively.However, the initial integration and practice in the past few years show that the officers and crew have increased in sufficient quantity to meet the market demand but are showing many professional and operational defects, practical skills, foreign languages when working on modern ships or multinational vessels. The limitation of crew members is due to many factors, one of the basic factors is the quality of crew training, and the defects that do not meet the practical needs, especially training programs at training institutions are outdated. The paper analyses the status of the quantity and quality of Vietnamese seafarers from 2010 to 2018, propose measures to improve the quality of maritime human resources, with a focus on building and developing crew training programs by CDIO approach to meet the requirements of businesses and society for future crews.
