Mathieu, Charles E.
The project “Maritime Education & Training in Bangladesh" deals with the existing system in my country, the development project under execution and the future course of action to be taken. While dealing with the subject I have tried to be straightforward as far as possible. I have tried to explain the essential elements which need to be developed if our education and training is to be effective in a changed technological environment in the field of shipping. I have tried to highlight the importance of practical training backed by sound & broad theoretical studies required of an serving on board a ship to run a modern vessel safely & efficiently. This stems from my personal belief that the ultimate safety of a vessel lies with the person who operates it. Training is a definite insurance against accidents & inefficiency. Our system is still new and in a development stage. I have put forward some suggestion which I consider will help our country. I have tried to explain the problems our country is facing in developing its education & training facilities. I have pin pointed the problem of lack of experienced teaching staff as our number on^ problem. I have put forward some suggestions to solve the problems.
