GoAGT Ltd. Maritime Training Centre Achieves DNV Accreditation
GoAGT Ltd. a world leading Maritime Security Company, providing roughly 1 in every 5 armed security teams operating in the Indian Ocean, has once again lifted the benchmark by achieving Det Norske Veritas (DNV) accreditation for its Maritime Training Centre located in Galle, Sri-Lanka.
The centre, one of the first to be accredited globally, can train up to 20 personnel at any one time in a variety of maritime security disciplines including Use of Force and Medical Training. GoAGT has been delivering in-house training at the centre to its deployed teams since 2010, maintaining its role as an innovative market leader.
Gerry Northwood, Chief Operating Officer of GoAGT, said; “The achievement of DNV certification lays the foundation for the creation of a world-class maritime security training centre.
He added: GoAGT is currently working closely with City and Guilds to become one of the first training centres globally to offer the new Maritime Security Officer course, which will become the benchmark training course for Maritime Security professionals.”
The GoAGT Training Centre will be running its pilot MSO course later this month. The new level 3 City and Guilds qualification is set to become a core requirement for compliance with the new industry standard for armed maritime security provision, ISO/PAS 28007. Having successfully achieved ISO9001 certification in 2012, GoAGT is currently working closely with LRQA to become one of the first companies to be accredited to the new standard due to be launched in June.
