Manila, April 5th 2016 – Unitra Maritime Manila Inc. (UMMI) in the Philippines selects VSTEP for the supply of a simulator classroom to train its trainees in accordance with the latest IMO requirements and model courses
VSTEP and its local distributor Poseidon Asia in Philippines have been awarded the contract from Unitra Maritime Manila, Inc. for the supply of a simulator classroom.
Unitra Maritime Manila Inc. provides crewing and manning services in Philippines geared towards global competence and excellence. UMMI’s president, Capt. Victor M. Villanueva, has confirmed earlier this month an acquisition of two NAUTIS Standard Desktop Trainers and one NAUTIS Instructor Station including the NAUTIS Assessment and Analysis Module to give instructors full control of exercises during training sessions.
As part of the proactive commitment, C/O Alex Allan R. Cortes, Manning Manager at UMMI believes that acquiring the NAUTIS simulators for its in-house training will help achieve a higher level of competence for the crews working with various Japanese manned vessels and improve the safety and most importantly the behavior and decision making skills of the crews.
The simulator classroom will be delivered and installed by VSTEP and its Philippine distributor Poseidon Asia by the end of this quarter.
Following the installation of the simulator classroom, the selected UMMI instructors and staff will also receive in-depth train-the-trainer courses from VSTEP engineers for operation and maintenance of the simulators.
