Core competence training

We are dependent on highly competent crew for Odfjell’s day-to-day operations, and we have a continuous focus on competence development and training. 

In Odfjell, experienced staff from sea and shore, and from our partners, facilitate relevant up-to-date training. Top-of-the-line training equipment and facilities allow our seafarers to be familiar with technical procedures and safety features, even before they go on board.

Safety first

Competence is more than expert knowledge and excellent skills, it is also about having the right attitude.

Apart from leadership and technical courses, Odfjell also offers a quality safety culture program recognized as a best practice by our oil major customers.

Cadets & Trainees

Since 2004, Odfjell has sponsored thousands of students aiming for a maritime career. 

Through our scholarship program, we have more than 50 cadets enrolled in classes and on board various ships at any time. As of July 2021, the Odfjell Cadetship program has supported 364 maritime students. These graduates continue to excel and many of them have already become Odfjell’s reliable officers.
