In Houston, TX this week a contract will be signed with Chevron for the National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI) www.nmci.ie to train all their junior Deck Officers and Engineer Officers. Some 450 Officers from around the world will come to the College at Ringaskiddy County Cork. The NMCI currently trains Merchant Navy Officers from both Ireland and other countries in addition to training the Irish Naval Service Officers and Ratings in their non-military disciplines.
This new agreement shows the high regard in which the NMCI is held by international maritime ship operators. As a result of this agreement it is expected that the NMCI will expand in both training equipment and living quarters.
