#MaritimeCollegeDeal- The Irish Examiner writes that the National Maritime College of Ireland (NMMI) will sign a landmark €2m training contract with one of the world's largest shipping companies in Texas.
The deal between the global giant Chevron Shipping Company and GAC Training and Service Solutions (GTSS) — a joint venture between the NMMI in Co Cork and GAC, a global shipping, logistics and marine services provider — is the single largest maritime training contract in the history of the Irish State.
It will result in the maritime college delivering a range of training courses to about 450 Chevron Shipping officers from around the world at its state-of-the-art Ringaskiddy facility — a constituent college of Cork Institute of Technology — over the next four years.
The courses will include skills training for Chevron's entire junior officer corps, and engine room workshop skills for its junior engineers. Click here, for more on this story.
