Publications and Productions

 
In order for the voluntary information and education offered by the Maritime Training Center to be effective in motivating the human element of the Greek shipping community, codified bilingual publications and other audiovisual material are made available as training aids. 

Publications, check-list placards, posters, leaflets, CDs and DVDs, related to regulations governing safe and environmentally friendly operation of vessels have been produced and widely disseminated by the Maritime Training Center. Most of the publications contain questions and answers so that they can be used as aids to companies and vessels for onboard training and the evaluation of the level of knowledge.

Displayed hereunder are bilingual productions, which can be found on HELMEPA Member Vessels and/or Member Companies ashore.

2014


This codified bilingual publication, featuring the United States Coast Guard’s (USCG) Guidelines to its inspectors for the examination of various parts of the vessel with respect to Maritime Safety, Environmental Protection and Security in English, is addressed to member-vessels trading in US waters. 

This Guide is a “tool” not only for preparing for examinations but also for the maintenance of ships and their crews at that high level that both today’s and the future’s quality shipping demands.

 

Τhe Guide was met with a positive reception by members, who asked for more copies.
