BBS advocates ‘Meer machen’

BREMEN. In its Annual Report 2020 published in October, the Maritime Training Centre (BBS) focuses on the adverse effects of COVID-19 and calls for more work to be done for maritime training in Germany. Although the trend in the number of new entrants for the apprenticeship to become a ship mechanic was positive, there was a decline in the figures recorded for officers’ assistants due to the pandemic. The new BBS website www.machmeer.de, which roughly translates as ‘make waves’, will hopefully, among other things, draw more attention to the maritime sector as a career.
