Amy Beavers, of Maritime Professional Training in Ft. Lauderdale, received a federal appointment to serve on the Merchant Marine Personnel Advisory Committee (MERPAC).

 

The committee advises the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on training, qualification, licensing, certification and fitness of seamen in the merchant marine. The appointment began on February 15 for a three years term.

 

Beavers is currently the vice president of regulatory compliance at MPT and has served as a member of the public at MERPAC meetings and working groups since 1998.

 

“This appointment is a significant honor for Amy and Maritime Professional Training is very proud that she will have a voice on such an important federal committee that influences the lives of the mariners who we are training every day,” said Lisa Morley, vice president of sales and marketing at MPT.

 

“I have every confidence her knowledge and experience will be tremendous assets to MERPAC,” Capt. Ted Morley, chief operations officer at MPT, said.

 

“I look forward to this new responsibility and I’m honored by the appointment. Throughout my professional career, my focus has been on supporting students and providing useful guidance based on my knowledge of the regulations and first hand experiences. The opportunity to serve on MERPAC will allow me to communicate how I see the decisions and policies as they are implemented in a real world setting, how they will impact the mariner and maritime corporations and labor unions, and where I believe improvements can be made,” Beavers said.
