CREWING SERVICES

CREW SELECTION

GERMAN MARINE AGENCIES, INC. (GMA) welcomes new hires. Applicants undergo interviews and a Crew Evaluation System (CES) Test to determine their qualifications.

Once an applicant is qualified, he undergoes medical examinations at  GMA’s accredited clinics.

GMA closely coordinates with its principals throughout the selection process.

 

CREW PERFORMANCE EVALUATION  

The crew performance is evaluated and results are monitored once the seafarer signs off.  Appraisal reports are given by their department heads and masters.

The performance evaluation criteria are based on standards set by our principals. Recommendations and suggestions for improvements are also requested from the seafarer's direct supervisors, chief engineers and masters.

These reports are the basis for promotion and trainings that may be  needed by the seafarers.

 

CREW TRAINING

GMA takes a proactive part in the development of its seafarers. Before the seafarers are sent onboard, they undergo needed training and seminars to prepare them for the challenges onboard the vessels.

Based on the performance evaluations, the seafarers are encouraged to update their knowledge and skills with regard to the implementation of their job responsibilities and duties. Upgrading of qualification to allow seafarers to move up in the career ladder is also highly encouraged.
