€4m MaritimeMT seeks to make Malta a centre for excellence
A maritime education training centre spread over 2,300 square metres in Ħal Far was inaugurated on Friday, as Malta seeks to establish itself as a centre for maritime training in the Mediterranean.
The €4 million MaritimeMT training centre will offer various courses leading to maritime careers, both directly at sea as well as shore-based ones. The centre will also provide specialised training for the superyacht industry, including navigation, engineering and hospitality training.
It features two DNV-certified Full Mission Bridge Simulators manufactured by Dutch firm MARIN, a Liquefied Cargo Handling Simulator, a GMDSS Simulator and ECDIS lab.
The centre has been developed by the Malta Maritime Pilots Cooperative.
