Amy Beavers, principal and vice president of regulatory compliance at Ft. Lauderdale-based MPT, has been appointed vice president of the Maritime Education Standards Counsel (MESC).



The MESC includes 30 maritime education schools and companies in the United States.



“After being involved in maritime education for over 25 years, I couldn’t be more excited and honored to join the board of MESC,” Beavers said in a news release. “This position allows me to blend my knowledge of the marine industry and my passion for maritime education with the great values of MESC, in an effort to ensure the standards of training and certification of mariners and the protection of the marine environment.”



Beavers has worked at MPT for 26 years and has been involved in all aspects of maritime education from teaching, career counseling and administration to program development and regulatory liaison with the Coast Guard Merchant Marine Personnel Advisory Committee (MERPAC) and other governmental agencies.



After 15 years of attending MERPAC as a member of the public, Beavers was appointed this year to serve on its committee representing maritime educators.



Established in 2005 by several school offering USCG courses, MESC serves to establish training standards and create a common voice for this sector of the industry. For more information, visit www.mesc.us.
