Maritime Professional Training V-P of Regulatory Compliance, Amy Beavers, appointed to serve on Merchant Marine Personnel Advisory Committee (MERPAC).

Maritime Professional Training announced that Amy Beavers has received a federal appointment from Secretary Napolitano to serve in the Merchant Marine Personnel Advisory Committee (MERPAC). The committee advises the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), via the Commandant and U.S. Coast Guard, on matters relating to the training, qualification, licensing, certification and fitness of seamen in the merchant marine.

Beavers is currently the Vice President of Regulatory Compliance at MPT and has served on several boards over the course of her career and has represented the maritime industry as a member of the public at the MERPAC meetings and working groups since 1998.  Beavers is well-known for her contributions to the Big Boat Bible, the MPT Career Reference Manual, numerous articles and speaking engagements on the subject of regulations and training that are required for maritime certification and licensing, and for her “Ask Amy” column on licensing that is published every month by Boat International and distributed globally.

“This appointment is a significant honor for Amy and Maritime Professional Training is very proud that she will have a voice on such an important federal committee that influences the lives of the mariners who we are training every day,” said Lisa Morley, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at MPT. “I have every confidence her knowledge and experience will be tremendous assets to MERPAC,” added Captain Ted Morley, Chief Operations Officer at MPT.
