EMSA's training courses for EU/EEA countries are agreed by the "Consultative Network on Technical Assistance" (CNTA). This network meets once per year under the Agency's chairmanship. Here, EU/EEA Member States discuss their training needs and priorities, based on a list of possible topics proposed by EMSA and national administrations. If different sectors of national administrations consider that they need specific assistance in the field of maritime safety, security and pollution prevention, they may channel their requests through their CNTA focal points: an annual training programme is agreed, based on the most popular requests.
