ALAM is where we are because of the close link with the business, technology and industry partners that we foster through the years. At ALAM, we take our partnerships seriously and continue to push the envelope of innovation with our partners.
Co-creation takes on a whole new level through our partnership with these industry leaders, such as FRAMO, Cryostar, Yokogawa, DNV, Man B&W, IMarEST, ABS, SIGTTO etc, to improve our programme standards. Thanks to our technology partners, ALAM has upgraded its entire niche training facilities (e.g Simulators). This means ALAM is better equipped to offer more simulator-based trainings, as well as training for shore-based executives and the non-STCW related courses (especially TMSA related).
With our business partners, collaboration goes beyond cadet sponsorships. We have also taken on value-added R&D work (Simulation Studies) for various new ports and ship operating areas and Traffic Risk Assessment Study for ATB / VITOL, Northport, PFLNG, LEKAS (MISC FSUs) and FSO SEPAT.
We are working closely with Malaysian Marine Department to benefit the industry, ensuring full national compliance with the 2010 Manila Amendments to the STCW 78 Convention and Code.
Together with our business, technology and industry partners, we are committed to chart new frontiers in the maritime industry.
