Why do we need a SailNet Programme?

In a more and more globalised world, the sea represents a never-ending source of competences, skills, ideas and projects. Connecting all the potentials provided by the “Blue Economy” and with the professional and educational expertise of the maritime training and education institutes, this project aims to implement a network of knowledge made of courses and internships for young and promising maritime managers at different maritime entities and thus promote and support new careers in the shipping industry.

A word from Jakov Karmelić,
Chair of SailNet Committee

SailNet is a multi-country training and exchange programme, established today in 6 countries and with the aim to go worldwide in the coming years, with the mission to strengthen shipping agents through quality education. It provides the shipping agents’ employees with the opportunity to develop and refresh their skills while also broadening their understanding about FONASBA.

The course is a fun, interactive, hands-on series of sessions designed to provide shipping agents with knowledge and develop leadership to skills, while establishing a fruitful professional and international network.

Capt. Jakov Karmelic
FONASBA Education Vice President
IMO Maritime Ambassador

What is the philosophy of the SAILNET Programme

The SailNet project proposes to develop and create a programme for new expert and competent professionals for the Maritime sector /Shipping Industry.

The participants will be encouraged to:

  • Develop leadership skills and a SailNet culture
  • Discover new ways to carry out the industry tasks, a new language and a different culture
  • Build lasting friendships and network with people from around the world

What are the teaching methods?

We are a training centre of a different kind with an extremely interactive and person-oriented approach; we are in pursuit of technical and humanist excellence, with a training programme that introduces the technical concepts of the logistics and port sectors to the participants using a methodology that facilitates communication and relations among the participants.

What sets us apart from other training methods and centres is the combination of theory with reality. This allows the students to experience what they have learned in the classrooms. As a result, the concepts studied are retained and can immediately be put into practice once the course finishes. Our partners, the ports and shipping lines, give us access to unrivalled training instruments: the infrastructures and the technical mediums. The port communities, our collaborators, provide us with knowledge, equipment and the experiences of their services and operations.

Who are the faculty?

The Escola has brought together senior industry professionals with wide experience in the sector, with whom we have been collaborating for over a decade, and experienced tutors from our network of training centres. Taken as a whole, they make up an enormous value proposition that combines knowledge and experience, which corresponds perfectly to the educational model of the Escola.
