Schulte Maritime Services Ghana (SMSG), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Schulte Group, aims to boost its presence and enhance its maritime services offering in West Africa by constructing a Marine Training Centre (MTC) at its existing premises within the grounds of the Regional Maritime University (RMU) in Accra, Ghana.
The establishment of an MTC will focus on providing marine and non-marine practical skill training programmes, and will ensure SMSG’s participation in all sectors of the Ghanaian and West African maritime offshore and engineering industries.
The MTC is the result of a close working relationship developed over several years between SMSG and the RMU in Ghana. The training centre will train and develop both the BSM crew and the RMU student competence as well as facilitate professional development.
MTC Ghana will primarily offer vocational training courses, mainly to maritime professionals, but also to non-maritime students in order to further enhance their skills and better prepare them for work in the maritime, engineering and offshore related sectors.
Construction work is planned to commence in the second quarter of 2019 and the MTC is scheduled to begin training in the second quarter of 2020.
