This past year has been a challenge for many of us and the Institute has been no different. We have however, seen positive steps with in our Branch and continue to focus on increasing education within our industry.

The Institute will continue to support as many schools as possible that offer Maritime Studies and are currently working on accreditation of ‘Understanding Shipping’ with TETA.

Internationally, the Institute is revisiting its Vision and Strategy to ensure we continue to create an organization that caters to the needs of its members into the future.

We are very proud of the South African students that excelled during the April and November examinations and look forward to many of them continuing their studies into the new year.

We wish all Members, Fellows, Students and supporters of the Institute, a very peaceful festive season with their families.
