Launch Date Set for Two New Job Training Programs

(Press Release)
Thursday, December 22, 2011
Renee Marazon, CEO, The Maritime Academy of Toledo Foundation, said that applications for people interested in the Cruise Ship Professional Development and STCW Basic Safety Training Programs have been sent out, and that a launch date of  January 16, 2012 for the new programs has been set. In November, The Maritime Foundation received a $25,000 grant from First Energy’s Economic Development Fund through City of Toledo Mayor Michael P. Bell’s administration.
“Over the past six weeks we received over 100 requests for information about the two new programs,” said Ms. Marazon.   “We completed our development of the qualification and application process.  We have met with The Source of Lucas  County so they can help recruit potential applicants.   Last week we completed the process of getting out applications to 115 interested individuals.”
As applications are submitted, they will go through a review process by committee at The Maritime Academy of Toledo Foundation. “The review process will pay close attention to work history and occupational assessment, as well as lifestyle.    Additionally, because we live in a post-9/11 world, and these are jobs in the maritime industry, there is a detailed  background check, as well as drug and physical tests,” said Lt. Cmdr. Daniel Kleiboemer, who was recently hired as the director of The Maritime Academy of Toledo Foundation. Class size for the Cruise Ship Professional Development and STCW Basic Safety Training Programs will be limited to 20 candidates.   Lt. Cmdr. Kleiboemer says he will accept 25 applicants for the first class with the possibility that some  may drop out. The two-week training program will start January 16. 2012 and will be held at the Maritime Technical and Education Center at The Maritime Academy of Toledo located at 803 Water Street. The Maritime Academy of Toledo Foundation says it is still accepting applications for the January 2012 class and for future classes.    
For more information on the two new training programs call Lt. Cmdr. Kleiboemer at 419-244-9999 or log on to www.themaritimefoundation.us
