In this paper we will analyze the types of seafarer’s education in different countries. The education of seafarers is not the same everywhere in the world and thus the quality of future officers differs from country to country. This paper displays the positive and negative aspects of a university level study and a study based on short courses. It will also show the number and percentage of active officers from various countries covering the maritime market. This paper indicates that the nationality of seafarers has changed in the last few decades, and it also states the reason for the decline of seafarers from developed countries. Moreover, in this paper we will analyze the quality of the officer personnel education through all kinds of short courses that meet a prescribed minimum standard which is not on a par with the maritime colleges and academies. This analysis should indicate the main deficiencies in the existing education system, and the necessity of adopting new and more effective measures for better education, which leads to improved safety at sea.

Key Words: Nationality of seafarers, seafarer’s education, demand and supply of seafarers.
