Tug Training & Consultancy signs MoU with Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy to develop strategic partnership

Tug Training & Consultancy (TTC) and Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy (ADMA), signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a long term strategic partnership. The MoU encompasses exclusive training of hundreds of tug masters and captains in the Middle East Region by certified trainers of TTC at ADMA’s state of the art facilities.

Facing the increasing demand for qualified maritime professionals, ADMA is seeking ways to safeguard its best-in-class training for which the organization is renowned. TTC fulfill this requirement being able to offer first-class trainers to tutor staff on the spot. As the only ISO 9001 certified Tug Training Company in the world, TTC sets exceedingly high standards for the training facilities it uses and ADMA perfectly meets these standards in its use of a fully equipped and exclusive Maritime Simulator Centre. Not only offering real-world insights into the challenges faced in the maritime industry, it also equips students with the right tools for mitigating risk and overcoming odds through an in-depth understanding of situations they may face.

Joint Pilot Tug Master training is requested more and more by various ports in the world to increase port safety and efficiency, therefore effective and efficient team work between Pilot and Tug Masters is one of the key training programmes of TTC that will now be conducted at ADMA.

Patrick Everts, General Manager of Tug Training & Consultancy said  “We are extremely happy with this strategic partnership. The Middle East is one of the key growth markets and we only want to work with training facilities that match the quality we stand for. This encompasses combined classroom and simulator training on state-of-the-art simulators. ADMA meets these requirements with their modern facilities very well. We are looking forward to starting our training and providing the students with our highly regarded TTC Certificate, ensuring more safety and efficiency to the maritime industry.”

“We are very pleased that we can continue to offer the highest standards of training in our facilities and are confident that together we will provide a large number of well trained professionals to the Middle East maritime industry” added Hamad Al Maghrabi, Managing Director of ADMA.
