MITAGS Formally Certified by USN As Non-Traditional Training Site

Friday, December 21, 2001
Glen Paine, Executive Director of the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate (MITAGS) and Pacific Maritime Institute (PMI), has announced that the United States Navy has certified the institute as a Non-Traditional Training Site. MITAGS met the rigidly high standards of the Navy and has been granted a much wider range of formal training for its personnel.

To gain formal certification, MITAGS had to meet or exceed U.S. Navy standards in Instructional Management, Curriculum Management, Evaluation Management and Student Management. The MITAGS Non-Traditional Training Site (NTTS) Certifications means that the institute will become an external source for naval training. MITAGS went through a formal inspection process that verified its conformance to standards and examined its facilities. MITAGS certification success was attributable to a sound foundation already established through its rigorous adherence to U.S. Coast Guard and Det Norske Veritas standards. The Chief of Naval Education and Training, based in Pensacola, Florida, and its agent, the Local Training Authority, Hampton Roads – Norfolk, Virginia will identify specific training courses to be developed, or standard courses which are already offered by MITAGS, to be offered to naval personnel. The Navy has traditionally provided sailors and officers, who are mission capable and fleet ready, with training that is delivered by a Navy Training Command. This training is normally group paced, highly structured and delivered in the classroom or laboratory setting with specific training materials. It is expensive to maintain a navy training infrastructure in which only a portion is devoted to training the sailor. The challenge is to address quality of life issues, while still delivering high quality training in a more effective manner. The Non-Traditional Training Site (NTTS) achieves these goals.
