Container Industry Competence Standard (CICS)

The objective of the Container Industry Competence Standard (CICS) is to provide a complete training and competence management standard helping container vessel operators to comply with requirements and improving knowledge and competence among their crew.

Advantages of using CICS

  • Electronic records of all completed tasks and assessments are available onboard and online for the individual officer and their supervisors
  • Automatic transfer of all records belonging to the officer between vessel and shore
  • Complete overview of all officers development and level of competence available for the training manager ashore
  • Easy to use status and progress reports • Possible to define company specific competences
