STAR Center Toledo courses move to Dania Beach site


The trustees of the AMO Safety and Education Plan have decided to shift the courses provided at STAR Center in Toledo, Ohio, to the STAR Center site in Dania Beach , Fla., later this year, consolidating training for American Maritime Officers members in one location.

The trustees' decision was made following a thorough review of the operating costs of STAR Center in Toledo, the training requirements on the Great Lakes and the availability of space at STAR Center in Dania Beach. Among other things, it was determined the necessary capacity is available at the Dania Beach site to accommodate the curriculum now being provided at the Toledo site. The last class at STAR Center in Toledo is scheduled for completion Oct. 3.

The training needs of AMO Great Lakes and inland waters members, as well as the training requirements of AMO contracted companies, were reviewed by representatives of participating operating companies, AMO Great Lakes officials and staff from the STAR Center sites in Toledo and Dania Beach during the annual Training Needs Conference held last week.

All of the AMO Plans remain financially sound and stable due in part to the perpetual review and oversight of operations by the directors and Board of Trustees. The consolidation of the two schools at the site in Dania Beach will provide a significant savings in operating costs to the Safety and Education Plan and maximize efficiency in operations while affording AMO members and contracted companies the benefits of sharing best practices and access to broader training opportunities.

A new schedule for STAR Center Dania Beach, which will incorporate Great Lakes and inland waters training courses, will be published in the August edition of American Maritime Officer and will be available next week on the Web sites for AMO, AMO Plans and STAR Center. More information on the transition will be published as it becomes available.
