Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Program Information


The National Maritime Law Enforcement Academy offers this Anti-Piracy training program for corporations that desire to field counter piracy operators that understand and can work effectively in the merchant marine environment. This program will satisfy STCW95 requirements, and certify the operators as vessel security officers through the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies, and in Maritime Domain Awareness training through the MARAD certified program Portstar. The operators will receive advanced training in use of force, judgmental shooting, and specialized classes in working effectively with Captains and Crews aboard commercial vessels.


Training will be established as Level II, for Basic Operators which meets minimum requirements for deployment, and Level I which is designed for the potential Team Leader and carries a Vessel Security Officer Certification and team management training portion in addition to the Level II course. The Academy believes that with the support of the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies, and given they are the AFL-CIO non-profit training center for the U.S. Merchant Marine Industry, that DHS/MARAD/FSU/NMLEA Certified training offered under Portstar portions of the course, that there is no more professional and effective training in the industry.
