 A four-day workshop on how to best design and conduct drills and maritime security exercises, has been held in Kingston, Jamaica (13-16 March), said a press release from International Maritime Organization (IMO). 

The aim of the event was to equip participants with the necessary skills and knowledge to plan, conduct and assess security drills and exercises in their port facilities. 
The workshop also included live role-playing sessions with various communication equipment
This helps port facility security officers, managers and designated authority officials to assess the effectiveness of the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) which is designed to enhance the security of ships and port facilities. 
The course is aimed at participants who are already well versed in the ISPS Code, and the relevant Maritime Safety Committee (MSC) Circulars and are familiar with the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Drills and Exercises Manual.
