Global training provider Marine Catering Training Consultancy (MCTC) has signed a two-year contract with EXMAR Ship Management, through its catering managers VAN HULLE Catering, to provide training to crew members on 34 of its ships.

MCTC, which specialises in the training of multi-national crew all over the world on all aspects of cuisine and galley safety, made the agreement through VAN HULLE Catering, global specialists in maritime provision and services, based in Antwerp.

Cyprus-based MCTC will focus on implementing its successful Catering Competency Development Programme, using an expert team of culinary consultants to guide the crew members through the training programme.

It will also enrol employees who have been selected for promotion onto its three-month onshore Maritime Culinary Development Programme in Manila, to arm them with the required skills and knowledge needed to perform the duties of ‘Second Cook’.

The team at MCTC will carry our extensive onboard visits throughout the two years to provide training to all catering crew members working on the fleet of 34 LNG and LPG ships. It plans to focus on increasing catering standards onboard; ensuring provisions are being correctly utilised and optimised; enhancing crew members’ knowledge and skills; and implementing a healthier living attitude on the ships.

Christian Ioannou, Managing Director of MCTC, said: “We are really happy to be able to work with such a reputable company like EXMAR. We are really looking forward to increasing the catering standards onboard and have a really good team of experts who are ready to start working with the crew members.”
