MITAGS Completes Mariner Assessment Approval of STCW 2010
Maryland-Glen Paine, Executive Director of MITAGS-PMI, announces that the institute will become fully approved to provide STCW-2010 mariner assessments for Chief, Mate, Master (CMM) courses via U.S. Coast Guard NAVIC 20-14 effective on February 1, 2016. It has already been providing assessments for Officer In Charge of Navigational Watch (OICNW) since September 1, 2015, which is part of USCG NAVIC 10-14.
“Taking a class is much easier than just sitting for the assessments,” said Eric Friend, Director of Training at MITAGS. “We have more than eighty-four trainers with the expertise and background that can prepare all levels mariner assessments.
MITAGS CMM program is thirteen weeks (65 days) of formal training that provides the knowledge, skills and confidence to take on the duties and responsibilities of a Chief Mate and Master. OICNW applicants should seriously consider MITAGS-PMI twenty-week Bridge Watchstanding Training & Assessment Option, or supplement with elective courses such as TCNAV, Watchkeeping, and/or Shiphandling. HPS, which was launched to the market in 2011, has proved its efficacy in delivering long-term efficiency and performance gains. In March Jotun released data for its first ever five-year dry-docking of a vessel treated with the solution - Gearbulk’s Penguin Arrow – showing that it recorded a fuel saving of USD 1.5 million, cutting CO₂ emissions by some 12,055 tons, across the 60-month period.
