The Ethiopian Maritime Training Institute (EMTI) has been confirmed as a finalist for the Lloyd’s List 2015 Global Training Award. The award goes to a company or institution which can demonstrate having made a contribution towards improving training standards.

EMTI currently graduates up to 500 cadets per year, and plans soon to expand its capacity to train over 1,000 seafarers annually, ranging from ratings to engine and deck officers. After completing a rigorous training programme at the maritime academy, EMTI cadets begin their careers as junior crew members with leading shipping companies on a global basis.

EMTI is a partnership between Bahir Dar University and the US-based investment firm, YCF Group. The demand for Ethiopian seafarers has grown rapidly in recent years, and EMTI is the exclusive marine officer training academy in Ethiopia. During a recent visit to EMTI in Bahir Dar, the Honorable Patricia M Haslach, the US Ambassador to Ethiopia, said, “The US has an old and cherished maritime heritage, and we are pleased and excited to help foster a maritime tradition in Ethiopia as well.”
