I am impressed by the work of one of Dover’s leading local businesses, the Viking Maritime and the Maritime Skills Academy. Based in Whitfield, with training sites in Portsmouth and Gibraltar, Viking provide training for a range of maritime needs including preparing staff for emergency responses to fire or the need to evacuate on cruise ships, ferries and superyachts. Visiting the Dover site, I was shown a range of training equipment for life safety and fire responders.
Viking Maritime is a stand-out success of a local business. It is so important that there is high quality emergency response, health and safety training.
The quality of facilities and training at Dover’s Maritime Skills Academy is amazing. We should be rightly proud to have this world-class training and recruitment business in Dover.
