Maritime Crew Competence and Training Management

Crew Training and Development


As part of OSM’s crew management, we have adopted the competence management approach as a key differentiator to ensure the continuous training and development of our seafarers.

In this philosophy, we first establish the knowledge, skill and behavioural requirements for a specific position and then engage the seafarers in a continuous cycle of assessment, training and reassessment. This structured training and development process is offered to cadets all the way to Master or Chief Engineer. OSM’s continuous learning cycle will amplify the career development of our seafarers and guarantee operational excellence of our customers’ vessels.

OSM’s training and development team has a full array of training interventions available from key subject matter experts globally. We provide shore-based courses using state of the art simulators, e-learning modules on iLearn that is available anytime, anywhere and an on board training (OBT) programme designed to address specific training needs on each vessel.

Marine Crew P&I and Extended Insurance Covers and Claim Handling Management

Crew P&I and Extended Covers | Pension Fund


  • Crew P&I and Extended Covers: OSM feels it is important to provide an increased level of security for crew and their families. By facilitating all claims handling in-house, OSM removes this burden from our customers and additionally absorb all statistics.
  • Pension Fund: The OSM Provident Fund has been established by OSM to provide seafarers with retirement, disability, and death benefits. The Fund has been established as a separate entity from OSM and undertakes to provide financial security.

What is unique about Crew Management in OSM?


The unique factor is that we have a single point of contact for our customers (PIC or Person In Charge) who will manage all requests internally and provide operational efficiency. Our PICs are versatile and undergo extensive training to be capable to provide solutions for operational, financial and extraordinary or even unconventional requirements. In OSM, our people are our number one asset and we are all about people!
