Crew Performance Management
The crew performance, while onboard, is evaluated through regular appraisal reports from their department heads and master mariners. The performance evaluation criteria are based on standards set by the principal and MANSHIP. Recommendations and suggestions for improvements are also requested from the mariners' direct supervisors, chief engineers and master mariner. These reports become the basis for promotion and trainings that may be deemed needed by the mariners.
MANSHIP takes a proactive part in the development of its mariners. Before the mariners are sent onboard, they undergo needed training and seminars to prepare them for the challenges onboard the vessels.
Computer knowledge is highly encouraged and instilled among mariners. Basic computer courses are offered to onsigning mariners. Officers are also required to undergo review courses until they are deemed proficient in the use of computer applications that are used in the vessels.
From the performance evaluations, the mariners are encouraged to update their knowledge and skills with regard to the implementation of their job responsibilities and duties. Upgrading of qualification to allow mariners to move up in the career ladder is also highly encouraged, if not required. Forthcoming training plans for mariners include an in-house modular English course similar to the courses offered by MANSHIP to its cadets.
