Launch of Seafarers Training Programme

The Mauritius Ports Authority (MPA) established under the Ports Act 1998 is the sole national port authority to regulate and control the port sector and provide marine services.  In line with its vision and with a view to ensuring the availability of suitably qualified and trained marine personnel, the MPA launched a training programme. The training programme is aimed at addressing the shortage of marine personnel, specifically for the manning of the Authority’s craft.
