STAR Center Simulators
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.
