ABS and KOSHIPA sign MOU for offshore training

The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and the Korea Offshore & Shipbuilding Association (KOSHIPA) have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop and deliver an offshore training curriculum.
{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The range of courses will cover drilling and production, as well as offshore engineering concepts. According to ABS, training will be hands-on, with a view to developing practical skills and improving offshore safety.
"For more than 50 years, ABS has been committed to working alongside the builders in Korea to promote mutually beneficial services to foster knowledge transfer and safe operations," said ABS chairman and CEO Christopher J. Wiernicki.
"This MOU is a sign of our continuing commitment to work with all stakeholders in this consortium to provide practical training solutions to meet today's most pressing challenges."
ABS has had a presence in Korea since 1961, when it opened its first Korean office in Busan. Since then, it has cultivated a relationship with KOSHIPA, whose members include some of the most prominent names in Korean shipbuilding, such as Dae Sun, Daewoo, Hyundai, Samsung and Sungdong.
"This MOU with ABS will strengthen learning for Korea's premier shipbuilding companies through structured on-the-job training and coaching to promote individual competencies in offshore," said Dr Young-Ju Suh, executive vice president at KOSHIPA.{/mprestriction}​
