The main objective of the project is to ensure that TMTI can continue to provide basic training and more specialized refresher and upgrade training to young trainees and present Tuvaluan seafares, meeting IMO training standards. This is to be achieved by upgrading present infrastructure and providing training equipment. This will ensure that Tuvaluans are properly trained and will continue to have access to overseas seafarer employment opportunities, upon which the social and economic wellbeing of the outer islands of Tuvalu depends. A secondary objective is to provide some critical infrastructure improvements and advisory services to the Marine Department.
