Training on Board

Training on Board (TOB) was an international training, nutrition and health project initiated by the Norwegian Maritime Authority in Haugesund on behalf of ISWAN.

Training on Board offered seafarers an accessible, free, and motivational training programme that encouraged them to take care of their own health and fitness. The project was fully funded by the ITF Seafarers' Trust. The main feature of the project was that a seafarer should be able to train on board with simple equipment or even without any equipment at all. For a beginner, participation in TOB could lead to a big difference in fitness.

TOB had a short-term objective to increase training on board a ship by 20%. The long-term objective was to permanently reduce the number of seafarers losing their health certificates.

Although this project is no longer running, all the previous issues of the Training on Board newsletter can be downloaded on this page.
