Welcome on board! The promotion campaign to introduce young people to maritime careers is underway

Why should a young person choose a maritime career? It is to this question that the Italian Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, with the support of the trade associations Assarmatori and Confitarma, wanted to give a concrete answer through the publication of a short but complete volume, easy to read, with the objective of introducing young people to this particular profession which over the years has certainly and concretely contributed to the growth of our country.

“Welcome on board!” – this is the title of the promotion campaign – is an invitation to young people “to rediscover a tough but fascinating profession, ancient but modern at the same time”.

A highly qualified profession which sees a specific training and updating activity.

To this end, with the interministerial decree of the MIT/MEF n. 297 of 11/17/2023, 7 million euros have been allocated for the period 2023-2026, to be allocated to shipping companies that undertake to train and hire young people that want became “sea professionists”.
Therefore the training will be totally free for aspiring seafarers.

“The shipping companies – comments Giovanni Massimiliano Consoli, Assarmatori – are responding positively to the initiative put in place by the MIT which has thus given a strong message to the sector, further recognizing its strategic value and aiming to put in place what is necessary to overcome the the current employment crisis. We therefore hope that with this new provision the shortage of maritime personnel, a difficulty reported on several occasions by the sector, will see a concrete reduction”.
