Advanced Maritime Leaders’ Programme

The Advanced Maritime Leaders' Programme (AMLP) is the academy’s apex programme for senior port and maritime officials at the Chief Executive and Deputy Chief Executive level. Conducted biennially since 2015, this unique and immersive executive development programme seeks to further hone the leadership skills of senior maritime leaders and build new capacity to transform their organisation amidst an increasingly complex and globalised environment. With an emphasis on peer-to-peer sharing and learning, participants will gain insights on transformational leadership, effective policy-making, stakeholder engagement and crisis communications.


Maritime Public Leaders’ Programme

Held annually since 2011, the Maritime Public Leaders' Programme (MPLP) is a broad-based executive programme for senior officials in maritime administrations who are at least Director-level or equivalent. The programme covers a wide spectrum of topics ranging from port planning and management, shipping economics and maritime law to public leadership and governance.  Participants will also have opportunities to interact with prominent figures from the maritime industry as well as gain insights into Singapore’s maritime operations and broad planning strategies.

The Port Management Programme (PMP) was launched in 2014 and is specially designed for port masters, harbour masters and middle management personnel from maritime administrations or port authorities. Participants will have the opportunity to gain insights into Singapore’s maritime operations and broad planning strategies through interactive sessions and site visits. The programme offers invaluable opportunities for participants to exchange ideas and network with industry practitioners and peers from around the world.
