nationally built and developed by the
ICN itself. They manage to virtualize various vessels and ship activities such as marine communications (GMDSS), dynamic vessel positioning (DP), load- ing and unloading (FPSOs/Tankers); maneuvers (Ships/PSVs/AHSVs/Tug
Boats) and ballast and demarcation op- erations. Among the courses offered by the Institute are those of ballast operator, maintenance supervisor, vessel supervi- sor and platform manager. Altogether, in seven years, more than 25,000 seafarers received certi? cates issued by the in- stitution and the expectation is that this number will increase signi? cantly in the coming years with the increase in pre-salt and new post-salt exploration activity,” said Felipe. With new oil ? eld develop- ments already ongoing in the Santos and
Campos Basins, off the Northeast Coast, and in the Equatorial Margin and long with the revival of cabotage, and increase in inland waterway navigation, private maritime academies such as ICN will be key factors in increasing the number of trainer local sailors and of? cers to sup- ply the expected future demands of the offshore and maritime sectors in Brazil.
