During the IMO World Maritime Day Parallel Event in Cartagena, IALA signed an Agreement with the Escuela Naval Almirante Padilla (ENAP) Colombia on Aids to Navigation Managers training. This is an important development as it is the first Accredited Training Organisation in Spanish language for the region. The first Level 1 AtoN Manager Course is scheduled to take place next year. ENAP will also host the Training Seminar on the Use of the IALA Risk Management Toolbox in November this year. It is a great pleasure to work with such a professional organisation and motivated team. Watch the video provided by ENAP.
The IALA World Wide Academy offers a distance learning programme to achieve qualification as an international IALA Level 1.1 Marine Aids to Navigation Manager. The programme consists of two modules of online learning, activities, case studies and examinations in addition to a residential course at an Accredited Training Organisation at various international locations. If all three modules are completed consecutively the qualification should be achieved within a year.
