UTV Training Prepares Towing Industry

Wednesday, May 19, 2010

Quality Management International, Inc. has developed a two-day training program for professionals in the towing vessel industry.  This course for Uninspected Towing Vessels (UTV) focuses on all the current regulations including clauses of the ISM Code relevant for tugs, towboats and barges.  By attending this class, towing professionals can get ahead of the curve and be well-prepared for the impending inspections.

The QMII UTV course is an intensive combination of lecture and hands-on workshops specifically designed to teach students both the new requirements and how to effectively audit their system to ensure that they will pass the Towing Vessels Bridging Program (TVBP) inspection.

The United States Coast Guard (USCG) has already started inspections under the TVBP.  The majority of commercial towing vessels (5,200+) are now required to pass inspections for certification.  This program will assist and ease the transition to ensure that the coast guard and the towing vessel industry are informed and prepared to meet the new requirements to be finalized in Subchapter M.
