Core competence training

Odfjell is dependent on highly competent crew for our 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 training that is continually reviewed and kept up-to-date. 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.

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.
