Wärtsilä opened a Wärtsilä Land & Sea Academy (WLSA) training center at its existing technology school in Khopoli, India. This is the fourth WLSA regional centre of Wärtsilä for global coverage of training and competence management services to ship owners and power plant owners. The other three are in Turku, Finland which opened in January 2006; in Subic Bay, the Philippines, and in Fort Lauderdale, USA. These training centres form the spine in the global network of other locations at which WLSA also provides training services. The WLSA scope of service extends from the basic off-the-shelf, standard product courses to a full range of courses for power plants, ship power and propulsion equipment in connection with competency qualifications. The first courses at the new training centre will commence in December 2006. The trainees will be able to take advantage of the Khopoli factory's facilities for reconditioning, machining, assembly, etc., for thorough practical training. In addition to well-equipped classrooms, there are workshops for practical training also on engines, propulsion equipment, marine electrical equipment, engine room ancillary equipment and control systems.
