As the training arm of the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), the MPA Academy was repositioned in 2014 to be a full-fledged academy with a dedicated premise with a focus on global maritime leadership training. The academy’s vision is to be a global learning centre for maritime and port administration. The academy’s mission is to enhance the skills and knowledge of MPA officers and to conduct flagship training programmes for overseas port and maritime officials, including supporting the training needs of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) as a Council member. The MPA Academy’s dedicated facility is located at PSA Building and was officially launched in October 2015.
