The NMCI has a close relationship with the Marine Institute in St. John’s, Newfoundland. This relationship was forged within the European project; CIMET – Centre for Maritime Training and Education. As part of the project, there were student and lecturer exchanges between Ireland and Newfoundland. All attended courses and engaged in cultural and social activities. Both colleges use similar ship simulation software and expertise in this area was shared. It is envisaged that the links will continue into the future.
