The Ceylon Chamber of Commerce and McLarens Maritime Academy (MMA) have extended their memorandum of understanding (MOU) for an additional five years. The MOU aims to provide comprehensive training programmes to marine surveyors and potential marine surveyors appointed by the Ceylon Chamber. Under the agreement, MMA will continue to collaborate with the Ceylon Chamber to deliver industry-leading training courses in maritime surveying. The extended MOU also aims to introduce new courses in marine surveying and streamline the appointment procedure for marine surveyors, supporting the Ceylon Chamber’s efforts to regulate and promote the maritime industry in Sri Lanka. The training programmes will be led by internationally accredited industry experts and will include both theory and practical sessions on board the McLarens group’s fleet of vessels. This approach allows trainees to apply their knowledge to real-world scenarios, enhancing their competence and proficiency as marine surveyors. The extension of the agreement is based on the successful service provided by the Ceylon Chamber in facilitating the training programmes, and the increasing demand for marine surveyors in the maritime industry. These specialised training programmes are seen as instrumental in meeting the industry’s current and future needs, particularly with the Sri Lankan government’s vision of establishing a maritime hub in the Indian Ocean.
