Training on Board

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

Training on Board offers seafarers an accessible, free, and motivational training programme that will encourage them to take care of their own health and fitness. The project is fully funded by ITF Seafarers' Trust. The main feature of the project is 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 can lead to a big difference in fitness.

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