This paper was produced with a collection of online resources to create a base for the development of MARITIME INNOVATORS initiative – Experiential Knowledge Based MENTORING programme. The programme is aimed at encouraging all its graduates those at sea, and those ashore who support them, to incorporate mentoring into the daily on board routine. The knowledge gained through experience, when reflected upon, is a valuable resource, which is called Experiential Knowledge. There are many more to experience on board to supplement the foundation of knowledge obtained at collage and ashore thereby this brings the importance of experiential knowledge which can be studied through various means.

The ultimate goal of this programme is to create a vast professional network within the members of seafafers thereby facilitating of strong links among those whom graduated from Maritime Schools and will graduate from the linked institutes.
