Abstract:

This paper describes how ISPS and MTSA mandates changed the operational structure of all Maritime assets. The Maritime world is forging ahead with the fist requirements in place, instituted and implemented. The paper describes how we are at a critical juncture of applying the edicts in our security plans, aboard ships, at shore facilities, in regions and in countries. Theses edicts require specific training and certifications. Drills and exercises are required. The paper intends to show how these have been promulgated on a Marine Training Vessel. In a teaching/learning environment we are always striving to find innovative ways to reinforce, by actual practice, the concepts introduced in the classroom. The paper also intends to show that this is a valid methodology for insuring the greatest possible retention of the precepts introduced. Varied and unique as it is, the training insures better retention in the minds of students. Choosing unique partners to train with, using their assets, which are at times very high tech, beyond the cost capability of most maritime training institutions, has proven effective for the Maine Maritime Academy and the Training Ship “State of Maine.” The value is spread to and from students to all participants in the drills and exercises and the resultant training each receives is value added to all. There is “Inherent Value” in this methodology from which all can benefit.
