Company President Ralston MacDonnell congratulated the graduates by saying, “It is our intention to maintain a program that will allow our graduates to have a positive impact on the development of the port and marine transportation system.”

MacDonnell has trained more than 10,000 port employees throughout North America in maritime and port security, and hosts annual conferences to provide a gathering space and forum for sharing best practices in operations.
