Basic Maritime Safety Training (FBS)

Currently, the maritime industry is facing a somewhat challenging situation due to a shortage of personnel, according to the IMO: there will be a deficit of 50,000 seafarers by 2026. This represents a substantial loss in meeting the sector’s demands.

With average salaries, depending on the position, ranging from €21,000 to €85,000 gross annually.

It’s a profession that promotes work-life balance, typically ensuring ample off-duty time in line with the embarkation period completed. With these figures, we can confidently say that undergoing this type of training is a stepping stone towards a secure and stable career.

Shipping companies increasingly demand highly qualified personnel with the most comprehensive training possible. At Grupo Stier, we offer a wide range of training options to pursue this profession and secure guaranteed employment. What are you waiting for to invest in your training and improve your employment prospects?
