EMTI Nigeria

EMTI (Nigeria) LimitedEMTI (Nigeria) Limited was developed at the urging of the United Nations International Maritime Organization (IMO); EMTI was specifically approached by the IMO for this purpose, because of its international maritime expertise. As a result, a joint venture agreement was signed with a highly-respected Nigerian company - Hu-Fy Systems Ltd. Lagos, and the Training Academy was opened in November, 2000. We have made much progress in the past few years, training over 3000 mariners.

Our institution in Lagos provides IMO STCW-95 compliant training in professional and technical subjects required by the IMO STCW-95 Convention, SOLAS, ISM Code, and ISPS Code, including GMDSS General Operator’s Certificate; Basic Safety Training (Basic Fire Fighting, Personal Survival Techniques, First Aid & CPR, Personal Safety and Social Responsibilities); Tank Ship Dangerous Liquids; Ship, Company and Port Facility Security; plus a full range of ancillary courses required by mariners and offshore personnel who need to meet the latest international requirements for certification. Our school is also approved by Nigeria, Bahamas, Marshall Islands, Vanuatu, Liberia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and other IMO “white list” countries of concern to Nigerian shipping.

EMTI NigeriaIn addition, EMTIN’s Quality Management System has been certified to NIS ISO 9001:2000 by the Standards Organisation of Nigeria for Maritime Safety and Security Training Courses, Global Maritime Distress and Safety Surveys, Installation, Maintenance and Repairs of Radio, Computer, Telecommunications and Electronic Navigational Aids Equipment.

EMTI NigeriaIn January 2006, EMTI (Nigeria) Ltd. was granted 2.2 hectares of land by the Governor of the Imo State to build a Maritime Industrial Training Centre, which will be the largest maritime training center in Africa. This will allow us to build a second training site in Nigeria to cater closer to the maritime and offshore industries in the Port Harcourt delta region. We intend to provide infrastructure assistance to the immediate area, training local youth and assisting them with locating employment through our contacts in the maritime and offshore industry. We believe the training and influence that will continue to be provided by Elkins in the region will have a stabilizing, long-lasting effect on tamping down discontent which causes debilitating actions against institutions and civilized structure. Further, we desire to provide a positive vision for residents of local communities. When people in impoverished lands believe the world cares, and that care is not just rhetoric, but action with tangible results (i.e., training, security and jobs)—security is enhanced.
