In recent years, a resurgence of violent events has been observed in international settings, in which the wave of terrorism that has awakened in many areas of society, politics, the economy and ultimately in the entire global context, has on many occasions used means of transportation as vectors for such insane activities. Such behavior and activity, which is certainly inhuman and barbaric, has driven the adoption, increase or adaptation of preventive measures that have been changing many practices that for decades were coined in the provision of these services or in the protection of international critical infrastructure, and are the new regulations and regulations that in the modern world are embedding new forms of protection and prevention and that therefore we must know and adapt to be on par with the new world orders.
Ports and ships must now comply with regulations from multilateral organizations, and others originating from a country or group of countries. Something essential to take into account in these new realities is, for example, the one that originated on July 1, 2004 with the entry into force of the Code for the Protection of Ships and Port Facilities (ISPS) established within the framework of the International Maritime Organization.
Is very important be very clear that the port facility is very different from the ship and the company, and it must be taken into account that the protection procedures are standardized, but the structure of each scenario is different, which means that those involved in protection and the rest of the personnel carry out the corresponding tasks fully to achieve the common objective:
“"The prevention of a protection incident that affects the daily work of employees in their environment and the operations of the organization."
In other words, the vision of prevention, security and protection filled many spaces that were abandoned in these scenarios and today, we must also focus on the fact that within this context we will have to look at these issues from the aspects of:
Implementation of plans
Execution of improvements
In order to organize a flexible title that responds effectively to the achievement of the objectives proposed for the course training and to acquire the necessary skills in the domain of activities, the course is developed using a methodology based on the following elements:
Initial list of topics and exercises that each module contains and that are developed throughout the course.
Syllabus content in web format with texts, photographs, images, graphics and necessary teaching resources that address the topics in each training session and serve as theoretical and practical support for the student's training.
Supporting documents that will serve for reading and analysis and complement the content of the syllabus, which may consist of articles of interest, magazines, videos, etc.
Self-assessment at the end of each content so that the student can consolidate concepts and data.
Videoconferences with voluntary attendance by students, being recorded for later viewing.
The student will have individualized tutoring, which will serve as continuous support so that the student achieves the objectives and optimal knowledge.
Forums and messaging in which the student can interact with the teacher and contact them to resolve doubts.
Bibliography provided to acquire the theoretical and practical knowledge necessary to be able to develop the double degree.
Carrying out an individual research project to complete the training?
Online training guarantees compatibility with other student activities, being adapted to the individual learning pace with flexibility.
A value is attributed in hours of teaching, so the complete course requires a dedication of 100 hours. The programming of the subjects or modules that make up the double degree and their coordination through seminars or videoconferences guarantee that the hours are distributed over 8 teaching weeks of the academic calendar.
