MOL strives to train seafarers, who will help it become “the world leader in safe operation”, by continually reviewing and operating its seafarer education program.

MOL RankSTEP establishes MOL seafarer skill requirements by position, which unifies skills to be acquired, acquisition methods, and evaluation methods for different types of jobs.
