Dubai Maritime City Authority launches new initiative focusing on maritime licensing training centers
 

May 11, 2014. Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Following the efforts to update maritime regulations and legislation, Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA) has launched a new initiative in connection with licensing marine training centers. This latest development aims to improve policies dealing with centers licensing and staff training as well as develop an integrated and flexible marine training curriculum to ensure maritime and navigational safety and operational efficiency along the local coast. The resolution is aligned with the initiatives to provide a unified and integrated framework to create a safe and sustainable maritime environment in Dubai, thereby reinforcing the emirate’s leading position on the global marine map.

Amer Ali, Executive Director, Dubai Maritime City Authority, said: “The initiative is part of our efforts to reinforce maritime training, which is one of the key pillars in achieving our vision to transform Dubai into a global marine hub. The new terms and procedures ensure compliance with the best international training practices and highest standards of maritime safety. Thus, the new intiative is expected to positively impact the operational efficiency of trade, tourism, sports, entertainment, and traditional maritime crafts. This recent move is one of the series of executive decisions aiming at strengthening the competitiveness of the local maritime sector in the regional and international levels.”

The new resolution contains a set of conditions under which the licenses of marine training centers are issued. Particularly, it covers placing clear informative signboards written both in Arabic and English and setting up of training rooms that are equipped with advanced communication tools and visual display devices, modern navigational maps, personal safety tools, first aid, and firefighting equipment. As for the training curricula, the initiative states that the curriculum must be capable of meeting the needs of any individual or institution, and that it must be able to cope with the rapid changes locally, regionally, and internationally.

Ali Al Dabbous, Executive Director of Operations, Dubai Maritime City Authority, said: “In accordance with the new guidelines, training boats must be equipped with personal safety tools, survival equipment, first aid box, navigational charts, tide tables for the UAE and the Arabian Gulf, marine radar, radar reflector, magnetic compass, GPS, echo sounder, training maritime signal flags, detectors, fire detection apparatus, as well as towing and training tools and ropes.”

The issuance of the new initiative regarding licensing of marine training centers is in line with the Executive Board Decision No. (11) of 2013 to issue the Implementing Regulations of Law No. (11) of 2010 for licensing marine craft  in the Emirate of Dubai. It supports the key efforts in creating a safe and sustainable marine sector in accordance with the existing Strategic Marine Plan.
