In a bid to ensure adequate training for cadets, the Nigeria Maritime Administration and Safety Agency has said it has concluded plans to train 250 cadets abroad.
The Director General of NIMASA, Dr. Bashir Jamoh, in a post on Twitter on Tuesday, said the cadets would be trained in Sea-time and related courses, in order to receive Certificate of Competency.
According to him, the cadets would be trained in countries like the Philippines, United Kingdom and Romania.

“The training is in line with the third performance pillar of the agency, which is shipping development,” he added, pointing out that the other two are maritime security and maritime safety.
