INTERTANKO's TOTS well received at Manila Manning Conference

At the 8th Asia-Pacific Manning and Training Conference in Manila this week, INTERTANKO's Regional Manager for Asia-Pacific, Tim Wilkins, provided the delegates with an overview of INTERTANKO's Tanker Officer Training Standards (TOTS).


Having been presented on the first day of the Conference with some hard-hitting evidence of the worsening state of officer supply, together with an indication of a falling competence level in the industry, Wilkins was able to provide a more positive note with an overview of INTERTANKO's efforts to improve competency among tanker officers. This ran alongside many of the other initiatives which INTERTANKO is working on in relation to the work of its Human Element in Shipping Committee (HEiSC) - not least the cadet birth membership provision.
