Government Required Maritime Security Training Programs Now Available in Video Tape for Ports and S

Wednesday, February 04, 2004
SeaSecure LLC, has created, in partnership with Moxie Media, the first comprehensive ISPS Code and MTSA-compliant maritime security training program designed specifically for seaports and shipping companies to meet both US and international regulatory requirements. SeaSecure, a global leader in maritime security and counter-terrorism consulting, co-developed the 11 video (or DVD) training program with Moxie Media, one of the United States’ largest producers and distributors of training and safety programs. “As a result of the terror attacks of 9/11, the United Nations and the United States established requirements that port and ship personnel all receive specific maritime security training”, Petersen said in a press conference. “The extraordinary cost of sending such staff to distant learning centers, including academy fees, airfare, hotels, and time away from work, has been crippling. After receiving extensive input from government and maritime agencies, SeaSecure and Moxie Media have created a training program that is easy to use, reasonably priced, and compliant with all US and international regulatory specifications.” Ship and seaport security training is now required due to the passage of the International Port Facility and Security Code. The ISPS Code was adopted by the UN’s International Maritime Organization (IMO) to address maritime security at all international ports and the security of ships engaged in international commerce. The US adopted the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 to codify the requirements of the ISPS Code. Both the ISPS Code and the MTSA have set strict training standards for port and ship operators that must be achieved by 1 July 2004. Martin Glenday, president of Moxie Media, stated that, “Training in maritime security is a critical element to achieving compliance with IMO and US regulations. Using the unparalleled international maritime security experience and expertise of SeaSecure, we have developed this series of programs to meet and exceed the mandatory training requirements of the ISPS Code and MTSA. The importance of these videos cannot be overstated. Ports face losing their Statement of Compliance from the US Coast Guard, thereby jeopardizing future visits by ships. And without proper training of their personnel, both ships and ports face increased liability in the event of a security incident.” For the first time ever, ship, terminal, and port facility operators have the means to train an unlimited number of employees at a fraction of the cost associated with seminar and academy based programs – saving travel costs, tuition costs, and hotel and meals. More importantly, this program will significantly reduce lost time from work and increase productivity. Ports and ships will have the ability to provide ongoing and refresher training for new and returning employees at any time and at no additional charge. Also available for every training program is a comprehensive Facilitators Guide, complete with test questions and answer key. The guide provides the course facilitator with the tools necessary to efficiently and effectively instruct, test, and score students on their comprehension of the maritime security curriculum. Furthermore, Moxie Media and SeaSecure can also provide third party certification of student test results. The cost for the entire series is $2,750, with individual programs available for purchase from $295 to $450 each. Yearly licensing options are available for companies requiring multiple sets.
