Abstract: The International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers, STCW, is the international convention which prescribes education and training for seafarers, including competence requirements for achieving eligibility as a master mariner. Despite extensive regulations, on how education should be carried out and fulfill the adequate skills, there are only a few, if any, substantial methods that verifies achieved competence among newly promoted master mariners. In comparison to professional development of Swedish flight captains, where their skills gradually builds up during education and training and are subsequently supported by proficiency checks, a counterpart within shipping is absent. With emphasis on proficiency development in practical maneuvering without automated instrumentation this study aims to investigate how development of competence appears for Swedish master mariners in the tanker segment. In parallel, a corresponding study of proficiency development for Swedish flight captains within the civil aviation is carried out. The research method was influenced by grounded theory and qualitative data were gathered through six semi-structured interviews, which are transcribed, coded by hand and finally analyzed. The respondents were all active officers in the maritime and aviation industry, three master mariners and three flight captains. Through the Oil Companies International Marine Forum, OCIMF, competency requirements concerning practical maneuvering have been adopted and these provides that tanker shipping companies ensures safe ship handling by competent crews. Consequently, a trade organization have identified deficiencies in the structure of proficiency development of master mariners, suggesting that proficiency development is insufficient in education as well as in the professional role. Through the result of interviews with master mariners in this study, this suggestion is supported. In comparison with the progressive training structure, and periodic checks of competence within the professional area of flight captains, proficiency development reveals clear differences between the two professions.
