Advancing our Competencies.
The Maria Tsakos TCM Academy- Training Center was established in 2013 by Tsakos Columbia Shipmanagement S.A. in order to cater for the arising training needs of Fleet’s Officers, Crews and shore staff employees.
The “Maria Tsakos” TCM Academy provides an interactive training facility utilizing the latest technology in best-of-class training to both on board and ashore personnel thus clearly demonstrating the company’s deep interest and strong commitment to Safety and the Environment. The Academy is accommodated at the Company’s Headquarters Building in Athens, in a 500 m2 space that has been extensively revamped for the purpose.
The “Maria Tsakos” TCM Academy provides the means to officers and employees of the Group to continually develop and improve their competence in order to ensure shipboard operational excellence in terms of safety, efficiency, environmental protection and competitive advantage. The simulators installed provide the trainees with the opportunity to operate and react in a virtual, yet fully realistic, environment where mistakes become lessons learnt, without risking damage to equipment and people. They offer an exceptional educational experience, which is not available on board. They also serve as a tool to initially educate and ultimately test and evaluate the officers’ competence and readiness to undertake higher rank duties and responsibilities.
