Training of our new Ocean team in Jamaica
Jamaica, August 21, 2018: in line with our development plan, we proceeded with the hiring and training of the Jamaican staff. This follows the 10-year agreement signed with the Port Authority of Jamaica for the provision of harbour towage services at the Port of Kingston.
Initial preparation and training were offered to the future crew members who will operate the three tugs in service. In total, about 40 Jamaicans will take part in the training program.
Here are two articles that provide an overview of the preparation of our staff for our operations and highlight the importance of training for our employees at Ocean.
