Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects Ian Borg visited the maritime training centre MaritimeMT in Ħal Far where certificates were awarded to students who completed the first superyachts course in Malta.
The course offered by MaritimeMT leads to promising careers in the industry such as officers in charge of the Navigation Watch on yachts below 3000GT as well as Masters on yachts below 500GT.
MaritimeMT is a centre that is offering training to all those who have a passion for the maritime industry both on a national scale and those from other countries who choose Malta as the destination to grow and develop their skills and studies.
It was in fact due to Malta’s reputation and achievements in the maritime sector, such as the world’s largest register of superyachts, that the Merchant Shipping Directorate merged with the MaritimeMT training centre and other centers to design an interesting range of courses aimed at the yachting industry.
Minister Ian Borg said, “This is another important step where we constantly sealing Malta’s name at the top when it comes to the maritime sector. We can say that Transport Malta has been a protagonist where it has supported this initiative from day one and has always been at the forefront of not only promoting careers in the maritime sector but also guiding training centers to meet the highest standards in this industry. I am also proud to see that six students from a group of fifteen are Maltese. This further shows the high level of skills and quality that our country holds in this sector. It is this reputation and quality that makes the Maltese certificate sought after also on an international scale and I am convinced that what MaritimeMT and the Malta Ship Registry have achieved so far is only the beginning of success. This would have never been possible without a strong vision, dedicated commitment and a team of experienced people to continue to leave a positive mark not only in the local maritime industry but also on the international stage.”
