One of the main purposes of this cluster is to train seafarers by way of systematic introduction IT technologies into the educational environment of the KSMA and KMSTC and to offer higher quality of education and training.

  • Integration of KMSTC curriculums into academic subjects of the Academy and College in educational and simulator training; this will allow the training center to carry out preliminary training of KSMA MC KSMA cadets in accordance with integrated plans to obtain certificates; as a result, some specialized courses offered by KMSTC are already integrated into KSMA curricula and delivered for KSMA cadets
  • Obligatory cadets’ specialized educational and simulator training
  • Maximum usage of Simulator Complex laboratories and equipment jointly exploited by KSMA and KMSTC
