Port security is one of the most important fields of Vocational Education and Training (VET) maritime studies. In this article, we propose the configuration of entities that are used to design a port security information system for VET education. Our work integrates recent maritime Information Technology (IT) concepts into VET. We record the initial design for building educational software for a school-level security information system that can be used as an extension project for the existing maritime curriculum of VET. This plan, if implemented and completed, will strengthen and expand the boundaries of school knowledge and curriculum. This article describes the design part of the whole project.
According to the recent reforms in Vocational Education and Training (VET) in Greece, the http://iep.edu.gr/el/naftiliakon-epaggelmaton ). They can do this choice in the second grade of the daily Vocational Lyceum (EPAL). In the second-grade, students attend 23 hours of Laboratory Training and 12 hours of General Education courses per week. In the 3rd grade of EPAL, after choosing one of the two (2) specialties provided by the VET direction, also they can attend 23 hours of specific lessons. According to the Gov. 1489 / t. B / 26-5-2016, from the school year 2017-2018 up today (2020), in the Sector of Maritime Occupations in the 3rd Class of the Daily and Evening EPAL, the following specializations are planned:
- “Merchant Marine Commander”
- “Merchant Marine Engineer”
Students who serve on a boat are considered as “individual pupils” with an obligation to take oral and written exams at the end of the school year. Upon graduation, students receive a master’s or engineering degree that allows them, if under 27, to participate in the national exams for admission to the Merchant Navy Academies (AENs). “Merchant Marine Commander” and “Merchant Marine Engineer” are taught Navigation.
Based on these guidelines, we propose a completely new classification of entities for the design of an information system security modeling based on the latest directions of IT, as well as the curriculum data and the institutional framework for maritime studies in VET. With the term “entity configurations in maritime specialties” we mean the distinct and independent configuration that can be a source of a maritime threat and may be included in a risk assessment framework.
