The Quality Management System adopted by MaritimeMT ensures that all training activities provided are developed, operated and evaluated in accordance with the standards of accreditation
These are exciting times for the Malta Maritime Industry. This can be witnessed by the consistent growth the sector is experiencing. Our ports and harbours have established themselves as an extremely busy maritime hub. Malta boasts a maritime flag which is the sixth largest worldwide and the largest in Europe. The Yachting and Superyacht sector is showing concrete signs of growth; new marinas are being planned, strengthening Malta’s claim to become a superyacht hub.
With Malta being an island and therefore perpetually dependent on maritime activity, it is a no brainer to invest in this sector. And what is better investment than the training of the human resources?
Established since 2010 as a DNV-GL accredited Centre and recognised as a Maritime Training Facility by the Authority of Transport in Malta, MaritimeMT has a history of significant investment through the installation of 2 Full Bridge Ship Simulators, aimed at servicing the training requirements of the Malta Maritime Pilots and foreign pilots wanting to improve their manoevring skills. Moreover, MaritimeMT is evolving further through a substantial multi-million investment which includes the construction of a brand new Maritime Training Centre, together with an even more comprehensive programme of training and studies developed around the needs of the industry and it’s professional crew.
One of the Training Centre’s major strengths is that it is solely owned by the Malta Maritime Pilots Coop Soc. Ltd. This means that the facility is run by individuals who have worked up the ranks and therefore have an authentic insight and understanding of the true needs at all levels. As someone once said, “If you want to know how to handle a crew, it’s great to be part of a crew”.
