Consultation Role: SAMTRA is an active participant in South Africa’s maritime community – not only by providing training products and services to the Industry, but also through its contribution to the ongoing development of South African Maritime Education and Training standards.SAMTRA representatives serve on advisory boards, maritime committees and hold various industry memberships and are always willing provide consultation or share their experience in the many areas of maritime training and skills development.
Team Building & Leadership Workshops: SAMTRA offers a really different and unique experience for corporate team building interventions and leadership workshops. SAMTRA has partnered with two management consultancies that focus on Organisational Development through the use of ship bridge simulators to facilitate team and leadership development by providing high-pressure experiences in a simulated, foreign technology environment.As candidates have no maritime background or experience, their lack of knowledge of the maritime environments paired with exciting, new and challenging scenarios and activities where candidates must participate and interact promotes better communication and teamwork.
