Title: Education and Training Standards of Competence

Description: FIG/IHO/ICA International Board on the Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors and Nautical Cartographers (IBSC) are preparing new editions of the IHO S-5 and S-8 Standards of Competence.  As there are numerous challenges around the hydrographic and cartographic disciplines in relation to education, programmes and courses etc., the IBSC are hosting an open style workshop to discuss the challenges around a sustainable and credible pathway for new entrants into the profession and career advancement for current professionals. The IBSC seeks to ensure that training and education standards and programmes are relevant to the needs of the profession and consistent with technical demands of the marketplace. This workshop will provide input to the process of developing new editions of the standards.

The workshop will have 3 main focuses in which participants from the public sector, academia, and industry are all invited to provide input:

  • What should the new S-5 standards reflect
  • Where the S-8 standards should evolve,
  • Hydrographic Certification – what, why, how
