MITAGS Completes Annual DNV Audit

Friday, January 14, 2005
Glen Paine, Executive Director of the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies (MITAGS), announced the successful completion of MITAGS’ annual Det Norske Veritas (DNV) audit. In 1997, MITAGS earned the distinction of being the first maritime training institution in the United States, and the second in the world, to be certified by DNV under their Maritime Training and Simulator Center Classification Rules. Under these rules, DNV determined that the MITAGS training management system complies with national and international training management requirements, including elements of the ISO 9000 classification series.

To maintain this certification, a rigorous review is conducted by DNV on a yearly basis. During the course of this inspection, Mr. Per-Arne Waloen, the lead auditor, reviewed the methodology and curriculum required to ensure consistent and effective quality training and administration; such as record keeping, testing, course presentation, and security issues. At the conclusion of the audit, DNV discovered no deficiencies and reaffirmed MITAGS’ status as a preeminent provider of quality maritime training.
