Teaching Faculty

MPA Academy initiated a scheme in 2014 to appoint maritime leaders and experienced maritime professionals as adjunct fellows and trainers to lecture at the Academy’s flagship programmes like the Advanced Maritime Leaders’ Programme and to conduct training courses and workshops for MPA staff. They form an important part of the Academy’s teaching faculty that includes MPA officers, industry professionals and academics from the Institutes of Higher Learning.

Collectively, our fellows and trainers bring with them many years of valuable expertise and experience in a wide range of areas like maritime governance, IMO Conventions, terminal operations, container shipping, port safety, pilotage, emergency response and crisis management. Their involvement in the Academy’s training programmes has greatly enhanced the quality and standing of our courses.
