Port opens Maritime Training Classroom

Posted: Aug 06, 2018 2:38 PM Updated:

The Port Authority of Guam Regional Maritime Training Classroom is now ready for students. The opening ceremony on Monday also marks the start of the first PAG Regional Law Enforcement Course for Tactical Operator's Certification, a course endorsed by the U.S. Coast Guard.

If the class is successful that would give the Port more opportunities to receive funding and resources to ensure law enforcement personnel are properly trained.

General Manager Joanne Brown told KUAM News, “We know we live in a different world certainly not the one we grew up in. The enemy used to be define when we looked at a map we could define those boundaries – it’s very easy nowadays. It could be anywhere it could affect us at any time.

"At the end of the day it's not just about Guam, we're here we're centered with ourselves, but it's important for all our partners in the region because they are our neighbors the threats are just as really to them as they are to us."

Brown is looking forward to expanding facilities, adding that construction of a new Port Admin building is in the works.
