Sea4marine Management Training Institute (FMTI) was founded in 1997 at Mumbai, India and greatly expanded in 2003, using state of the art simulators and audio visual aids to meet the rapid growth of the Sea4marine.
The institute is a DNV Certified and Director General of Shipping approved Maritime Training Centre. FMTI courses comply with the requirements of the STCW 95 Convention and the guidelines of Directorate General of Shipping, India.
FMTI conducts DGS approved courses on Full Mission Engine Room and 180 degree full-mission Bridge Simulators at both operational and management levels.
TOLAS’ (Training on Land and Sea) is a web based training system developed totally in-house by FMTI. With TOLAS, FMTI has become a world leader in providing online web-based training. With the rollout of TOLAS to the entire Sea4marine of 200+ ships, FMTI became the first institute to provide seamless and fully integrated ship-to-shore training fulfilling the much needed convenience to seafarers
TOLAS Centers have been set up throughout our manning centers in India, China, Philippines and Eastern Europe, allowing crew to attend training near their places of residence.
The Institute produces much of its own course materials. Videos are shot onboard vessels and produced by the institute’s in-house creative team resulting in high quality in terms of content and cost effectiveness in terms of value. Over 700 items of course material have been integrated into TOLAS. And producing new course materials is always ongoing.
