Inhaltsangabe:Introduction: Advanced vocational training and continuous learning is needed to excel other competitors on the job market, and is contributing to self-satisfaction. Regarding the shipping crisis it should therefore be deemed crucial for nautical officers in order to qualify for special market segments aloof of the mostly affected container shipping. From a companies point of view the crisis should be considered as a chance for intern restructuring, thus gaining competitive advantages for the future. According to results from this year s human resources trade fair PERSONAL2009, well directed personnel development during the depression will give a return on investment by preventing skill shortage in the long run. One chance of specialisation for nautical officers can be seen in the field of ice-navigation which is becoming more and more important due to the opening of arctic seaways. According to the experience of Columbia Ship Management it has always been a problem to find skilled officers for this domain. Observing the development of Polar traffic and presuming an increase during the next decades it seems advisable to gather early experience in this field, in order to become a highly qualified officer until the demand on the job market rises. Additional nautical qualifications are obtained through practical experience and interaction on special operating ships and have to be consolidated by instructed courses and self-studying. E-learning in all of its facets offers very suitable ways, guiding through these studies. The research for this work was focused on two issues: E-Learning and its advantages for on-board training on the one hand, and the required proficiencies for a safe ice-navigator on the other hand. This written composition mainly copes with the qualities of e-learning, while the results of the study on ice-navigation topics can be found in the computer based training attached to this work.
