Alternatively, the centre can even organise and carry out training courses on board ship. “Our dedication to maritime training is reflected in our constant development of new products such as the latest Polaris 4.1 simulation software and maritime.e-campus.com,” comments Per Branstad, former president of KMSS and now in charge of the development of the Maritime Training Business at the company.
