The Maritime Industry Authority (Marina) through its Standard for Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping (STCW) office, plans to extend the accreditation of training courses offered by Maritime Training Institutions (MTIs) from three years to 10 years.

The move was seen to unburden training centers and will reduce the distraction in their operation caused by frequent inspections every time they apply for accreditation of their courses.
