De Ruyter Training & Consultancy B.V. (DRTC) based in Vlissingen has taken over the course activities, the training pontoon 'Sepia', the household effects and involved teachers / instructors and support staff from NTTA B.V.
The trainings are now provided from the training pontoon which is moored at Bornholmstraat 20 in Groningen. For specific (practical) parts of the courses, such as fire fighting, other locations in the neighborhood are used.
Part of the courses is conducted in collaboration with ROC Noorderpoort, with DRTC Groningen acting as the contracting party for our clients. With this collaboration, knowledge and skills are expanded, so that the quality of the nautical courses and courses is lifted to a higher level. The STCW, Marcom and radar courses and the Ship Management course can be offered due to the greater availability of facilities.
This means a win-win situation for both DRTC Groningen and Noorderpoort.
