The agreement signed between Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy and Marcap opens the door for beneficial cooperation between the two powerful entities. Moreover, it contributes a lot to UAE Emiratization.
The main area of collaboration is training and development where each party is going to contribute within its area of experience. ADMA's role is to prepare cadets arming them with knowledge and practice on simulators while Marcap contribution is to take them on board and familiarize them with real sea life.
Manpower will always be required offshore in the foreseen future. ADMA introduced a fascinating simulation facility recreating the atmosphere on board and offered a variety of development courses for continuous education. Marcap constantly conducts training offshore emphasizing particular topics, safety practices and 100% HSE.
Marcap and ADMA together are concentrating on the future that is determined by digitalization and artificial intelligence, collaborating on new technologies that will serve the maritime industry. Here is the challenge in finding the balance between being innovative and considering human factors. Communication in the form of awareness programs, thematic conferences and open sessions with stakeholders is the right path to go.
Theory and practice are two valuable aspects required to grow a true professional. In this sense, ADMA and Marcap is a great example of complementary partnership.
