Bangladesh Marine Academy has just been awarded with a Membership of GOBTC (Global On-Board Training Centre: http://www.jblfmu.edu.ph/gobtc/home), a global body that was developed during STCW 2010 Diplomatic Conference at Manila, under the auspices of IMO - UN. By the grace of almighty Allah, I signed the Revised STCW 2010 on behalf of Bangladesh in the Conference.

(GOBTC SecGen Dr. Hisashi Yamamoto’s message):
Bangladesh Marine Academy has been one of the most dynamic maritime academies in Asia-Pacific Region as well as in the world.

GOBTC is an initiative of few Maritime Educational establishments for providing on-board training to the Cadets along with IMO Scholarship prospects. Our Academy is expecting to have a Commercial-cum Training Ship (10,000 DWT) by 2016 under a Korean grant. Then we would be a strong Member to GOBTC!
Currently there are 15 Members from 13 Countries including Bangladesh. Memberships include Dalian Maritime University (China), Istanbul Technical University, Maritime Faculty (Turkey), John B Lacson Foundation Maritime University (Philippines), Korea Maritime University (Republic of Korea) etc.
