Nigeria training course to boost port security
Nigerian officials responsible for the security of port facilities have undergone training at a week-long course in Lagos, Nigeria (20-24 March).
Participants were trained in the necessary skills to plan and conduct effective self-assessments and audits of port facilities – in line with IMO’s International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code and other guidance.
The course was organized by IMO and the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) following a needs-assessment mission in January 2016. The Lagos training event is the second phase of the three-phase IMO technical assistance programme to help support NIMASA’s maritime security programme.
The course was conducted by a team of IMO consultants.
