There is a huge demand for high quality and well trained personnel to manage and operate the technologically sophisticated ships of today. The importance of education and training can never be overestimated. At the same time modern technology can never replace good seamanship, but it can always improve it. Therefore, training is one of the most important factors for safe, efficient, economical and environment friendly ship operation.
Well trained and competent seafarers are the number one criterion for success. That is why this state-of-the-art Azalea Maritime Training Centre, first of non-state maritime establishment with Administration STCW approval, was founded in Montenegro.
