Abu Dhabi Ports (ADP) and Jaheziya, a subsidiary of Tawazun, are joining forces to introduce a range of maritime training courses and programs, as well as attract students and interested parties to enroll in them. As part of the agreement, Abu Dhabi Ports will deliver all the maritime theory and practical courses, and provide all the necessary experienced teaching staff to facilitate these courses.
Recognised and endorsed internationally, and delivered by accredited instructors, ADP courses cover a wide range of maritime subjects. These include the Musaffah Channel Familiarisation Course, IMO Model Course 1.27 for ECDIS, IMO Model Course 1.07 for Radar/ARPA Operational Level, and the mandatory course for seafarers, Human Element, Leadership and Management Course (HELM), mandated by the Manila amendment to STCW. Currently students from KSA, Qatar, India, Iraq and the UAE receive training from AD Ports Maritime Training Centre.
Jaheziya Managing Director, Jamal Mohamed Al Shamsi, stated: “Jaheziya is keen to be a partner with Abu Dhabi Ports in this venture to attract, engage and train students on theoretical and practical maritime courses. In order to achieve our common goal, Jaheziya will make all facilities available to Abu Dhabi Ports to enhance their training proposition and add value to the development of the students from a practical perspective.”
Jaheziya provides technical, vocational and professional training and leads in the field of joint training between various authorities in the management of emergencies, crises and disasters. It provides the necessary knowledge and support to contribute to the building and enhancing of the UAE’s capacity to protect communities. Jaheziya’s training facilities, in Musaffah, will be used as the main training site for the purposes of this collaborative venture.
