Modern realities dictate harsh conditions for the service sector. New generations of managers are coming, service personnel and educational institutions are forced to change their approaches. This can be quite reflected in the existing reality of yachting.
Campus du Nautisme in Occitania creates a new university degree. It will be called Gestion des Ports de Plaisance Nautisme Fluvial et Environnement. Its director, Guillaume Philippe, explains why this is needed, what the courses will be and what it should lead to.
Campus du Nautisme's answer to the needs of marinas
The Campus for Maritime Professions and Qualifications in Occitania was established in August 2018. It brings together various educational institutions.
- secondary and higher educational institutions,
- educational organizations,
- research laboratories,
- institutional partners
- private companies in the maritime and recreational shipping sector.
“We have several tasks: to support the R&D sector (research and development). We act as a liaison between professionals and research laboratories of institutions.
Among other things, we are engaged in the promotion of professions and the creation of new or innovative training courses.
Incidentally, this is why the Union of Port Cities of Occitania (UVPO) turned to the campus. The Union asked to solve his problems related to finding training courses that would suit his needs.
The advantage of the campus network is the possibility of individual courses. This allowed us to create our university degree.
Specialty - Recreational Wharf Management, River Management and Environment. " Thus, Guillaume Philippe, director of the Nauti Campus, explains the need for a new specialty.
Changing marinas' jobs and changing management ages require changes in hiring policies.
“It looks like the current managers will retire soon. Yachtsmen, on the other hand, are only looking for a boat garage. Therefore, the challenge is to update management and adapt to new conditions.
However, regional funding was also found through a call for proposals. They are all part of innovative training courses, ”continues Guillaume Philippe.
In addition, there is a 200-hour year-long refresher course for port officials. It lasts one week in winter.
In addition, the course is intended not only for those wishing to improve their qualifications, but also for job seekers. By the way, only 12 places are available.
Under the patronage of the Institute of Enterprise Administration (IAE), training is provided by university professors and port directors. The main thing is that these are the interested parties. For example, such as the regional nature park.
Training that can be applied everywhere
By the way, the G2PNE diploma will provide an opportunity to develop outside of Occitania.
“Our goal is to meet local needs for 3 consecutive years. By the way, after that there is a possibility that the training can be applied everywhere.
In addition, the campus offers other specialized training in sailing, saddlery and carpentry, ”concludes the director of Nauti Campus.
