MITAGS-PMI has established its latest Navigation Skills Assessment Program® training center in Mumbai, India. The new facility is located on the campus of Anglo-Eastern Maritime Training Centre (AEMTC), India’s leading maritime institute.

The NSAP® is a risk-based measurement tool utilizing Class A Full Mission Simulators to objectively measure mariner skill compliance against internationally accepted STCW standards. It focuses specifically on the core skills required of licensed deck officers and includes a one-on-one discussion about the specific skills of each mariner assessed by the program.

The program is offered at locations throughout the world, including two in the United States, in Croatia, the Philippines, the U.K. and now India. Over 30 Global Companies from the Oil, Cruise, Container, Government and Workboat sectors utilize the NSAP® to identify and mitigate risk within their organizations.

“Objective Simulation Assessment, now a TMSA 3 requirement (5.4.2 and 5.4.3), is gaining substantial traction throughout the maritime industry. The ability to identify the specific risks within a company, and to provide tools to mitigate those risks is proving an invaluable asset for high quality shipping companies. The additional capability for multi-national companies to provide assessments across nationalities at locations worldwide has differentiated the NSAP® from any other assessment program in the world.” Stated Gregg Trunnell, NSAP® Global Business Development.


With facilities in Mumbai, Delhi, Odessa and Manila, AEMTC is a major provider of maritime training in Europe and Asia. The institute is committed to the belief that training of the ship’s staff is a critical factor in achieving a safe, economical and profitable operation of any vessel, and believes that NSAP® furthers this goal with a complementing set of assessment programs for senior and junior mariners alike.
