Joint Training and Certification initiative
2017, November 1: Lamar University Center for Advances in Port Management, the Caribbean Maritime University and Port Management Association of the Caribbean (PMAC) have notarized a pact for collaboration. The document, a Memorandum of Understanding, was signed during the 20th Annual General Meeting of the PMAC on June 22 in Grand Cayman.
The agreement between the two academic entities, with the Port Management Association at the centre, creates a crucible for the development of synergies involving the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) (i.e. the Professional Port Manager Certification programme), Lamar University Center for Advances in Port Management and the Caribbean Maritime University.
This collaboration, said the PMAC’s Executive Secretary, Glenn Roach, could lead to the issuance of reciprocal credits and joint certification. In this regard, he noted, the Caribbean Maritime University has proposed provision of applicable credit for AAPA and PMAC participants in the AAPA webinar programme.
