We were delighted to welcome @RNLI Irish Trainers to the #NMCI earlier this month to complete STCW PST training. We look forward to supporting the future training needs of the #RNLI volunteer lifeboat crews, who work tirelessly to save lives at sea throughout Ireland & the UK.

Maritime Transport Developments: Ireland and the EU

National Maritime College of Ireland, Cork

SeaFest will be taking place here in Ringaskiddy, both at the NMCI & the Beaufort Building, in July. As part of this conference there will be a seminar which is being organised by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport (DTTAS).    The aim of the seminar is to outline and discuss relevant developments at national and EU level which underpin a successful maritime transport sector in Ireland.  There will be a particular emphasis on the international and EU dimension, and the relationship between the regulatory environment and the relevant actions in Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth (HOOW).  The seminar provides an opportunity to discuss actions and progress in Maritime Safety, Security and Surveillance – one of the eight Enablers identified in HOOW as vital for creating the conditions for growth and investment.
