The remarks prepared by four participants in a panel discussion on human aspects in maritime education and training are presented, namely, those of the president of Maine Maritime Academy, the superintendent of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, the managing director of CAORF (the Computer Aided Operations Research Facility), and the president of the California Maritime Academy. The remarks include discussions of such topics as the importance of designing training programs that will minimize the chance for human error at sea, simulator-based training, and the types and levels of skills required of ship personnel to man new, automated ships with reduced crews; and of the thesis that safety is the purpose of training, the attainment of proficiency is the goal of training, simulation is the means of training, and responsibility for training properly lies with manning organizations and ship operators.
