  • Certain position on a ship are vacant, but there are no seafarers available, therefore in the future Marine Department of Malaysia will train existing seafarers to encourage them to be promoted to officers and masters.
  • Seafarers sea time on the sea are not counted if they work on barges, therefore if a seafarer work on barges, the sea time of the seafarer will be counted but halved in the future.
