The first IMLA Conference on MET (Maritime Education and Training) was held in Amsterdam, Netherlands in 1980.

Each event has confirmed the growing interest in and importance of Maritime Education and Training (MET). The development of technologies and the respective updates in requirements concerning safer and environment-friendly shipping, along with the increasing number of multilingual and multicultural crews, stress the importance of international meetings for maritime lectures and others, concerned with the education and training of maritime personnel.

 

 

An IMLA Conference is a no-border forum: a round table for discussions on sea-related topics as well as a way to establish or maintain contact with colleagues who face the same challenges and difficulties in their work. Teachers and other parties from all over the world dedicated to transfer knowledge to future seafarers are invited to freely present their achievements, share and discuss experiences and exchange ideas.
