MARITIME TRAINING PROGRAMS.
Dedicated Training and Development – Investing in your Future!
Since the early 1990s, we’ve been focussing heavily on in-house training in our key recruiting locations, especially here in the Philippines where more than half of our crew come from. As part of our long-term vision, specialised maritime training programs have been set up to provide cadets with a well-structured and dedicated career path, so that they may become highly skilled and competent professionals, and progress through the ranks in good time.
Trainees follow our set training and development model, which includes classroom and laboratory education, extensive simulation training, computer based training, as well as practical training at sea on board our crew managed vessels.
United Marine Training Center (UMTC) in Manila is our dedicated training centre. In 2017, UMTC was recognised as a Centre of Excellence by DNV-GL, making it the first maritime training centre in the Philippines and Southeast Asia to obtain this status.
UMTC has extensive and state-of-the-art facilities, including 31 classrooms and laboratories, 7 marine simulators, 7 deck and seamanship practical training facilities, 4 engineering workshops, 9 electro-technical workshop and laboratories, CBT training, a fully equipped culinary training unit, as well as other ancillary services, such as a 650-bed 4-star dormitory, recreational and fitness facilities, meals, and airport transfers.
The staff at UMTC is made up of handpicked and regularly appraised and upgraded specialised instructors, together with over 60 full time faculty, all who work very closely with our own training and crew operations departments here at Marlow.
