IMO Launches Training Institutes Online Directory

Thursday, April 01, 2004
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has launched two web-based information resources to provide information about and for the maritime community.

The MARTECAID (MARitime TEchnical Co-operation AID) database is an interactive inventory of ongoing and planned technical assistance activities in the maritime sector while the online Compendium of Maritime Training Institutes (CMTI) is a directory of maritime training institutes worldwide.

Compendium of Maritime Training Institutes (CMTI)

The online Compendium of Maritime Training Institutes (CMTI) provides a listing of maritime training institutes worldwide and allows for searching by country or name of institute. The site allows direct input of information by Member States themselves, thereby providing them with a direct channel of communication to potential users.

The aim of the CMTI website is to facilitate global access to information on maritime training institutes around the world, and to promote the exchange and accuracy of that data.

MARTECAID (MARitime TEchnical Co-operation AID) database

MARTECAID is a web-based inventory on technical co-operation activities related to maritime safety and security and marine environment protection. The aim is to facilitate global access to information on the range and scope of maritime technical assistance around the world and to promote the exchange and accuracy of that data.

By accessing this up to date picture of global resourcing for the maritime sector, potential recipients may identify complementary sources of funding, while donors may use the information to minimize duplication in the planning of their development aid. The site allows direct input of the information by Member States themselves. The information on projects and activities is provided by national authorities responsible for development aid and by agencies involved in providing technical assistance within the maritime sector.
