Mentoring Review Program

The Program and it's Aim

This program is designed to assist officers to attain a high level of skill and competency for the next level designation prior promotion.

Promotion in any rank is to be based not just on shipboard appraisals but also only after successful completion of the mentoring program.

The Facility

The mentoring procedure is designed in three stages. The Fleet Management Training Institute (FMTI) designs relevant task activity appropriate to each officer's Mentoring Program and inserts same in the PARIS.

The officer, under the suitable guidance of Senior Officers / Shipboard Mentees will then do these activities, on board ship and gain suitable knowledge and experience. The officer will then prepare suitable supporting task documentation for each task carried out.

On completion of all relevant task, the officer shall then arrive (during his earned leave period) at various FMTIs/ Branches for Review of these supporting task documentation. The documentation should establish not just the fact that the candidate was engaged in such activity but also should indicate that the Mentee has gained a suitably high level of understanding and competence, related to the task.
