Part of our global support network
Kongsberg Maritime Training centre in UAE, represented by Anne Toril Kasin from KM and Mr. Kumar from Unique, was approved by Nautical Institute and Mr. Ian Giddings
Kongsberg Maritime's new United Arab Emirates (U.A.E) training centre was last
week officially approved by the Nautical Institute for Dynamic Positioning (DP)
course in the Middle East. The new centre has been implemented as part of Kongsberg
Maritime's strengthening of its global support network and is now ready for user
training for its customers worldwide.
"The DP approval of the training centre was our first aim in order to provide
training on Kongsberg Maritime's products in the Middle East," states Anne Toril
Kasin, Product Training Manager, Offshore and Marine. "The next step is technical
training on DP, as well as DataChief - alarm monitoring and control system & AutoChief
- propulsion control system training, but it is also important for us to be able
to offer vessel control training for the LNG vessels," she says.
"With our dedicated training centre available in the Middle East, it is easier
for us to be flexible in providing quality training." With the number of training
courses going on world wide right now - it is great for our instructors to just
turn up to an already fixed classroom setup.

a great job," concluded Roald Holstad.
