Maritime Professional Training opens new classroom, simulator

Nov 2, 2016 by Lucy Chabot Reed

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.
