Manilla last week signed an agreement to provide training courses for Kongsberg products in the Philippines. Following demand from ship owners, several courses will be initiated Autumn 2007.
The Norwegian Training Center - Manila (NTC-M) was established in 1990 by the Norwegian Shipowners' Association in order to provide relevant upgrading training for Filipino seafarers serving on the ships of its members. At the time some 25,000 Filipino seafarers were serving on Norwegian-owned or controlled ships.
In order to simulate a real life situation the classroom will be equipped with state of the art Kongsberg simulation products, designed to enhance the experience and learning curve of the Filipino attendees, in their local environment.
