Maritime Professional Training opens new classroom, simulator

More than 100 people joined Maritime Professional Training (MPT) last week at the official ribbon cutting of its new 25,000-square-foot classroom and simulator building in Ft. Lauderdale. Two years under construction, the state-of-the-art building has hosted classes for the past few months, but this was the first time the industry was invited inside for tours. Home to three full-mission simulators, hands-on technology labs and an entire engineering wing with classroom space and equipment, the center enables MPT to expand the number of classes it offers.
