Maritime security company GoAGT Ltd. achieved Det Norske Veritas (DNV) accreditation for its Maritime Training Center located in Galle, Sri-Lanka.



The center, one of the first to be accredited globally, can train up to 20 personnel at any one time in a variety of maritime security disciplines including Use of Force and Medical Training. GoAGT has been delivering in-house training at the centre to its deployed teams since 2010, maintaining its role as an innovative market leader.



Gerry Northwood, Chief Operating Officer of GoAGT, said, "GoAGT is currently working closely with City and Guilds to become one of the first training centres globally to offer the new Maritime Security Officer course.”   



The GoAGT Training Center will be running its pilot MSO course later this month. The new level 3 City and Guilds qualification is set to become a core requirement for compliance with the new industry standard for armed maritime security provision, ISO/PAS 28007. Having successfully achieved ISO9001 certification in 2012, GoAGT is currently working closely with LRQA to become one of the first companies to be accredited to the new standard due to be launched in June.
 


Headquartered in Norway, DNV is one of the top three global classification societies setting standards for the Maritime Industry for over 140 years. The certification recognizes compliance with DNV standard 3.402, the standard required of Maritime Training Centers to be endorsed by the leading classification and verification society and reflects the high professional standards embodied within the center.
