MNTB Recognised Entry into Enclosed Spaces Training at the NMCI

Posted: March 28, 2017


Can you afford not to train?


On board Confined Space accidents are not a new phenomenon.

There were 101 Enclosed Space Accidents (reported) between March 1998 and May 2009, resulting in 93 Fatalities and 96 injuries. Since May 2009 a further 12 accidents have occurred resulting in 10 deaths and 7 injuries on the MAIB database alone (Source – Marine Accident Investigation Board). More than half of Enclosed Space fatalities and injuries are sustained by would-be rescuers.

Working in an enclosed or confined space is particularly dangerous as the space may be deficient in oxygen and/or contain flammable or toxic fumes or vapours. Basic procedures to ensure personal safety must not be compromised at any cost irrespective of the type and condition of the work.


As legislation is changing to protect seafarers we at NMCI Services recommend crew undertake our one day “Entry into Enclosed Spaces” course.


The aim of our MNTB recognised “Entry into Enclosed Spaces” course is to give you or your team training to meet the requirements set out in ‘The Merchant Shipping’ Regulations 1988, IMO Resolution A.864 and the Code of Safe Work Practices for Merchant Seamen (COSWP). The course will meet the new amended requirements laid out in the SOLAS Regulation III/19.


Entry into enclosed spaces is a silent killer… having up to date training will help save lives.

Team Building at the NMCI

Posted: February 6, 2017

Effective teamwork is at the heart of every successful operation. Every individual contributes to the success – or failure – of their team, so it’s vital for all members to work together as a single efficient unit.

NMCI Services offer Team Building courses featuring group exercises using our environmental pool, fire-fighting yard, damage repair unit and 360° bridge simulator to test and develop participants’ cooperation and problem-solving skills in a variety of outdoor and indoor scenarios.

A typical Team Building day might involve all the virtual thrills and spills of a navigational race around Governors Island in New York Harbour, as experienced in one of the college’s cutting-edge bridge simulators. It could challenge participants with a repair exercise in a rapidly flooding chamber in the Damage Repair Instructional Unit (DRIU), or it might test them to the maximum with a range of foul weather sea survival exercises in the environmental pool. The choice is yours!

Two groups from Irish Mainport Holdings enjoyed taking part in team building days at the NMCI during January and February of this year. Have a look at some of the images below to see just some of the pool team building elements in action.

For further information email and we will be happy to discuss our Team Building days in more detail.
