MARPOL Training Institute NPDES Training

Thursday, March 19, 2009

California-based MARPOL Training Institute, Inc. (MTI) released its NPDES Training for Vessels (NTV) software package. This software meets the requirements of the EPA’s Vessel General Permit (VGP) Section 5 for crew training which went into effect February 6.

“NTV details each of the 26 discharges permitted under the VGP”, explained MTI’s Managing Partner Captain Robert Hall, “as well as providing training on a fully customizable checklist that helps you document required inspections and corrective actions.  The NPDES Inspection Checklist (NIC) reminds you which inspections are Routine, Quarterly, Annual or Dry-dock.”
 
NTV is installed on either a local area network or training computer in offices and aboard ships and will soon be accessible on the Internet.  For easy learner reference, many screens link electronically to a paragraph in the VGP as well as a citation in VGP Factsheet.
 
Crew members’ enrolling in the training creates an auditable database that companies can use to prove that they have fulfilled the training requirements required in the VGP.  When participants complete the training they take an exam and, upon successful completion of the exam, can print out a certificate.
 
NTV is the U.S. Federal regulatory complement to MTI’s, Meeting MARPOL Standards shipboard training software program, which covers international pollution regulatory requirements.
