The Maritime Skills Alliance of which the NWA is a member has just won the prestigious ‘Investment in People’ award at the Seatrade annual award ceremony in London for its suite of Maritime Apprenticeship schemes.
The Workboat Apprenticeship scheme which has just been finalised and authorised by the Scottish Qualifications Authority is one of 6 different maritime apprenticeships within this suite, which utilises units from the Maritime Skills Qualifications (MSQ) units which the NWA has assisted in writing and bringing to fruition. For more details of the Apprenticeship scheme visit the Training section of the website.
On June 15th, the NWA will be hosting a forum entitled “Towage: Reducing the Risks – Raising the Standards” in the Upper Deck Conference Room, from 10:30 – 13:30. Members are strongly encouraged to join – but all are welcome.
Following public consultation, the MCA has now published an updated version of the High Speed – Offshore Service Craft Code for vessels under 500 tonnes.
