The crisis also hits the seafaring labor market, and furthermore the MET system. Some possible reasons for the changes of the labor market are: - Many seafarers from European countries particularly eastern European countries came back to ships due to the financial situations of their countries and sharp depreciation of European currencies; - Many ex-seafarers from Asian countries such as Korea and India who used to serve on the shore have rejoined the ships; - Quite many shipowners canceled or delayed ship-building plans due to the world financial crisis; - More and more aged and single-hull ships are being phased out due to IMO regulations, for which many seafarers have to be signed off.Therefore, the market can now be seen as “shipowner-oriented market” instead of “seafarer-oriented”. More and more seafarers, particularly the ratings, have to compete with others for a job onboard. Therefore, MET systems, including the scale, teaching curriculum and modes for both cadet program and seafarers updated training, is required to be adjusted accordingly to provide better services for the industry.
