 The Djibouti Regional Training Centre (DRTC) has been equipped with a modern computer-based training simulator as part of International Maritime Organization (IMO)'s efforts to promote maritime safety and security in the West Indian Ocean and Gulf of Aden.

Equipment installation, funded through a contribution to the Djibouti Code of Conduct Trust Fund by the Kingdom of Denmark, has been completed and the first cohort of six Djibouti officers have been trained to operate it.
The simulator training room consists of 11 trainee consoles and an instructor's work station. The package includes software for many modules such as Marine Communication, Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) and Search and Rescue (SAR).  It is capable of maritime safety and security scenario simulation and also includes animation and video clips, printed and electronic textbooks and training syllabus.
IMO's Kiruja Micheni, and Commander John Hansen, representative of Denmark, are in Djibouti to oversee the finalisation and handover formalities.
