MPT to Invest $1.5m in Training Program

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Maritime Professional Training (MPT), a DNV Approved Maritime Training Center and an ISO 9001:2008 Company, has committed another $1.5m to further enhance its “Project 2010 & Beyond”.  This project was envisioned as a means to update a wide range of their courses and enhance the learning experience and cost effectiveness for their students.

MPT said the funds will be spent almost exclusively as part of their ongoing expansion of its simulation facility, the S.M.A.R.T. Campus. The facility conducts Simulation for Maritime Assessment Research and Training and has long been used for both regulatory course compliance as well as research projects for port development and familiarization training.

The facility upgrades will include a fourth Full Mission Ship Simulator Bridge designed for Advanced Dynamic Positioning and AHTS training as well as enhanced features allowing for the conduct of T.O.A.R. programs.  The upgrades will also include an additional ECDIS lab featuring the newest version of MFD ECDIS displays. This new lab will allow students to train on the newest equipment whilst fulfilling the regulatory requirements for the training. The installation of a new DP Lab for both Basic and Advanced Course offerings will round out the upgrades slated for completion. 

Additional upgrades already in progress to the current bridges and facility will update the software, hardware, and displays allowing for an even more realistic visually immersive training environment. MPT is pleased with the response that the Project 2010 & Beyond upgrades have received so far and is committed to providing the very best level of training possible for their clients and students. New training vessels, new classrooms, new equipment, and even a few new faces are all receiving a welcome response from everyone!
