MTC is the number one training center for more than 600 pilots in Germany since 2009

Basically, all pilots are required by authorities to undertake several training hours per year in accordance to the IMO A960 regulation. To fulfil this demand, we have developed a whole range of training courses for pilots together with German and international pilot associations and other partners.

Please note, all our instructors engaged for pilot training courses are highly experienced port, river and sea pilots. Any exercise area can be generated for the simulator training courses.
