First UK MCA accredited assessors and examiners in Montenegro
In order to strengthen the position of the proven market leader in the field of maritime training, Azalea Maritime Training Centre instructors successfully completed the training for Assessors and examiners and received the certificates by an UK MCA accredited training provider.
After completing the training for trainers in accordance with the IMO Model Course recommendation tailored for the trainers of Azalea Maritime Training Centre Bijela and in the process of constantly seeking for opportunities for improvement and upgrading the knowledge and skills, the next necessary step forward was for our instructors to upgrade the knowledge and skills regarding process of assessment and examination and to find reputable and challenging training provider that would perform that training on the highest level.
For that reason, the training course for Assessment, Examination and Certification of Seafarers, in accordance with the recommendations of the IMO Model Course 3.12 and provisions of Section A-I/6.2 of the STCW Code, has been conducted at Azalea Maritime Training Centre Bijela by an UK MCA approved training provider in the period from 18.09. until 22.09.2017.
The training course was very intensive and challenging, consisting mostly of the “hands-on approach” where the instructors from Azalea Maritime Training Centre refreshed and upgraded their knowledge and practice of various examination methods and techniques, including preparation, administration, supervision and monitoring of effective written and oral examinations, as well as competence based assessments. During the course workshops and practical exercises, the nine (9) instructors of Azalea Maritime Training Centre proved to be up to UK MCA standards in all the topics the course covered and after the successful completion of the course were awarded with the appropriate certificates, being the first trainers in the region certified by an UK MCA approved training provider in the topics of Assessment, Examination and Certification of Seafarers.
