Training and Development

In SPO, we believe that ongoing investment in our people will ensure that our seafarers and shore-based employees continue to be among the best in the industry. Our competent and stable workforce enables us to provide safe, reliable and high quality services to our clients. Every year, SPO invests in statutory and discretionary training for sea-going employees to ensure that a consistently high standard of operational excellence is maintained across the company's diverse fleet. 

SPO's flagship training centre in Singapore, Swire Marine Training Centre (SMTC) has state-of-the-art training facilities that fully simulate the working environments on board to ensure the delivery of safe and operational training for sea staff within the company. The Ghana Marine Training Centre (GMTC) which was launched in 2018 bears testimony to SPO's commitment to ongoing training of seafarers in the region.
