Once again, HELMEPA’s Maritime Training Center “opened its doors” to young people who intend to engage in maritime professions.
On 28 March, graduate students of the Shipping Department of the Institute of Vocational Training “New York College”, accompanied by their professor Ms E. Livadas, had the opportunity to be informed by HELMEPA’s Maritime Sector Representative on the multipurpose work and activities of the Association, including the “HELMEPA Cadets Program”. They also discussed the major contemporary environmental issues and how they affect – and are affected by – maritime activity and commented on advances in ship pollution prevention regulations.
The visit ended with the students visiting HELMEPA’s Bridge simulator’s facilities, becoming acquainted with the modern means and navigation technologies.
