ABS certifies LNG training course of RTM in US

Monday, 18 June 2007

This makes RTM STAR Center the first and only training organization in the US, and one of only eight organizations in the world to be accredited or certified as meeting the SIGTTO standards for LNG, the center said in a statement.

The certification process by ABS included a gap analysis and in-depth review of all student and instructor training materials followed by a rigorous two-day onsite audit by a team of ABS auditors and LNG experts.

RTM STAR Center, with locations in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Toledo, Ohio is internationally recognized as a premier maritime training and simulation center.

The RTM center is the primary training provider to American Maritime Officers (AMO) union members.

Officers with SIGTTO-certified training will meet stringent industry guidelines and standards as well as owner, operator and charterer requirements in the LNG sector.
