Transas Expands ECDIS Training Network in ChinaPosted by Michelle Howard
The New Alliance Marine Training Center (NAMTC) has joined the Transas Global ECDIS Training Network (GET-Net), and shipping companies can now benefit from an ECDIS training from the first Transas GET-Net partner in China.
The New Alliance Marine Training Center was established in Wuhan, China in April 2009 with main objectives to provide training services for shipowners and operators and help Chinese seafarers in improving their competence to meet the requirements of the global maritime market. In the past years, NAMTC has trained more than 20,000 seafarers who work for more than 50 shipping companies. In the near future NAMTC will extend its Transas installations from a single classroom to a full-mission bridge simulator featuring 360° field of vision, Offshore and Engine Room Simulator ERS 5000 TechSim.
With almost 40 GET-Net partners around the world, Transas said its network of type-specific training providers is now the largest in the world offering ECDIS training in accordance with the STCW 2010 requirements.
