SAFEMED IV Training on THETIS-Med for Turkey
Under the framework of the EU funded SAFEMED IV project, EMSA’s staff delivered the training on THETIS-Med in Izmir, Turkey, from 5 to 6 February 2020. Overall, 22 participants from the Turkish Maritime Administration attended the course.
The two-days training aimed at ensuring a smooth transition to the new system by providing participants with an overview of the system in order to familiarize themselves with the latest knowledge in THETIS-MED's functionalities and features. These include the management of not only MS office and ports scheme, but also MS users such as Portal (EMSA IDM) and local configuration (THETIS user config), inspection details (validation, modification, and ban), the internal notifications and publishing documents in THETIS-MED. The training focused also on the revision of the tasks of the National Administration.
THETIS-Med became operational on the 1st of February 2020 for all Med MoU Members. THETIS-Med’s training sessions strengthen cooperation and encourage partnerships between the staff of the beneficiary country maritime administration and EMSA staff aiming at improving Port State Control activities.
