Seminar on the IALA Risk Management Toolbox, Colombia

The World-Wide Academy conducted a training facilitation visit to Dirección General Marítima (DIMAR) Colombia to provide a briefing on the accreditation process to deliver the Level 1 AtoN Manager Course. Vice Admiral Juan Manuel Soltau Ospina, General Maritime Director of DIMAR, expressed a clear commitment to support the goals of IALA and thereby support the Safety of Navigation in the region. DIMAR is likely to be the next accredited training organization that will deliver this course in Spanish language. The Capacity Building and Resources Manager of the Academy, Ms. Gerardine Delanoye was very impressed about the resources and the commitment of the professional staff.

As there is a great demand for Spanish training in the region of Meso America and South America IALA will deliver a Training Seminar on the Use of the IALA Risk Management Toolbox in Colombia between the 18 till 22 November 2019. This event will be hosted by DIMAR Colombia and they will arrange for simultaneous translation to Spanish. This will be the first Spanish Seminar on the Risk Management Toolbox, a great achievement for the region. The seminar will provide an international overview of risk management stressing the importance of stakeholder liaison before demonstrating the value of the four IALA Risk Management Tools – IWRAP Mk 2; PAWSA, SIRA and Simulation in waterway planning. The seminar is targeted at those involved in the design, marking and management of waterways.
