Philcamsat receive recognition from MNTB
The Merchant Navy Training Board Centre Recognition scheme provides independent verification for ‘best in class’ training centres, whilst also serving as a valuable quality improvement process in its own right.
To achieve recognition, a centre must meet a detailed series of good practice criteria set by the MNTB, whilst also being an institution capable of providing effective training that meets identified industry needs.
The scheme is ISO9001 accredited and has the full involvement and support of the UK Chamber of Shipping, the trade association for the UK shipping industry.
