The quality and competence of vocational higher education lecturers need to be improved to improve the quality of vocational student education (Mouzakitis, 2010). In implementing higher education, Polimarin has an obligation to develop science so that it can have value benefits for the community. The development of maritime science is among others by improving the quality of lecturers as educators who produce superior human resources. One of the lecturers' competencies that need to be improved is an information system-based maritime lecturer (Pazara, Arsenie, & Pazara, 2010). The shipping security system can be collaborated with information systems that are currently developing very rapidly. So that the application of information systems based maritime security systems can be improved. The implementation of the above program is the implementation of Polimarin's lecturer competency training program through a lecturer retooling program at the Marine Institute Canada. This program can support the government's Nawacita program with the Sea Toll program. So that Polimarin can improve the competency of graduates or human resources in the field of maritime security (Feldt, Roell, & Thiele, 2013) to be more competitive and have superior competitiveness at national and international levels. The output of this training program is that it can develop the science of security systems that are collaborated with scientific information systems (Peslak, 2011). Furthermore, it was stated in the preparation of the Certification Scheme and Competency Test Material which will be held at the Polimarin Professional Certification Institute.
