The Bahrain-based company earned its Accredited Training Course status after a vetting process by Trinity House.
The initial courses to be delivered will be IALA Level 2 Marine Aids to Navigation Technician, suitable for people tasked with conducting the installation, servicing, maintenance or replacement of marine aids to navigation and their components. The MENAS courses will be delivered according to the IALA World-Wide Academy (WWA) model course syllabus.
MENAS said it would target government and semi-government departments within the Gulf Co-operation council for the course, and will start courses once the pandemic had “eased off”.
In time, MENAS plans to deliver the IALA Level 1 Marine Aids to Navigation Manager course, which is aimed at personnel responsible for strategic and operational management of aids to navigation. The course will promote IALA standards as a means for coastal states to fulfil their SOLAS Convention obligations.
Mahdi Al Mosawi, General Manager for MENAS, said: “We’re delighted to have developed a course to help provide a universal approach to ensure thorough training and standards are maintained globally.”
