Introduction & Course Content

Maritime Resource Management (MRM)™ is a training programme based on research in the human factors area. It was originally called Bridge Resource Management (BRM) when it started in 1993 and through the years has evolved into what we know today as MRM. It aims at preventing incidents in maritime operations that are caused by human and organizational errors.

MRM is ideal for deck and engineering officers, maritime pilots and shore-based personnel. The objective is to ensure that everyday operations are supported by sound resource management. 

Analysis has shown that a large number of dangerous shipboard situations arise due to poor communication or coordination, rather than technical failures or lack of skill. That's why MRM aims at fostering positive attitudes, good personal communication, excellence in leadership skills and compliance with operating procedures.

MRM training is available in over 35 countries worldwide with over 100 Licenced Training Providers. 

Refresher courses are recommended to keep you up-to-date on current issues.
