AMPI joins Shipping Australia
The Australasian Marine Pilots Institute (AMPI) has joined the Shipping Australia association as a corporate associate member. AMPI is the professional body representing marine pilots all over Australasia. It assists in the setting of standards, safety management and provides support and guidance with ongoing professional development. Together with its partners, AMPI has developed a set of training standards for both initial and continual training for pilots.
As a partner of the International Marine Pilots Association, AMPI also has input into important decisions made by the International Maritime Organisation.
"This engagement is important, as it allows AMPI to provide expertise and guidance in an area that is critical for protection, not only for ships, but also for port infrastructure and the surrounding environment," said Captain Peter Dann - AMPI president. (cd)
