Strengthening port security is the focus
of two five-day workshops on the implementation of the International Ship and
Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code) for Designated Authorities and Port
Facility Security Officers (PFSOs) (6-10 June and 13-17 June) in Cape Town,
The IMO course, jointly organised with
the United Kingdom Department of Transport (DfT), brings together maritime
security professionals from the Department of Transport and training providers
who are keen to improve their knowledge and skills to become ISPS trainers.
This training course will contribute to developing a pool of maritime security
experts who can conduct ISPS training in South Africa and across the region.
Participants have an opportunity to
practice what they learned in the first training during the second week.
The activities take place at the port of
Cape Town in the TNPA Maritime Training Centre.
