Abu Dhabi Ports’ Training Centre records a successful 2014

The number of trainees at the Abu Dhabi Ports’ Maritime Training Centre increased by 15% in 2014 compared to 2013, reaffirming the centre’s world-class training programmes.

In order to answer the growing demand from candidates across the region, five new courses have been added to the programme which covers the Channel Familiarisation course, the Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) course, the Port Facility Security Officer (PFSO) course, the High Speed Craft Operators course, as well as the course on Human Element, Leadership and Management (HELM), on both the management and operational level.

In May 2014, the training centre successfully passed the Lloyd’s Register audit and is now accredited in their register as an officially approved training provider. This is a first such achievement by any maritime training institute in the region.

The centre has also been officially recognised by the International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities (IALA) for its VTS courses. As a result, the centre is now included in the IALA list of recognised VTS training providers in the region.

In October last year, Abu Dhabi Ports officially signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) Abu Dhabi, which will see the parties working together to develop a partnership for academic collaboration and training.
