The education of seafarers is not the same everywhere in the world and accordingly the quality of future officers. This paper work displays the positive and negative aspects of study by faculty or through short courses. It will also show the number and percentage of active officers from various countries covering the maritime market. This work indicates that the nationality of seafarers has changed in the last few decades, and it also indicates the reason for decline of seafarers from developed countries. Also in this paper work we will analyze the quality of the education officer personnel through all kinds of short courses that meet a prescribed minimum standard which it’s not on a par with the maritime colleges and academies. This analysis should indicate the main deficiencies in the existing education system, and the necessity of adopting new and more effective measures for better education, which leads to improved safety at sea.
