"As a sailor and as a teacher, I feel very honored, especially today, that we are celebrating the graduation of our future colleagues. It is touching where they crossed the threshold of our academy, specifically three years ago and finishing an intensive graduate programme, they are now ready to travel.", said Capt. Spyros Mandalenakis, GMC Maritime Training Center & Maritime Academy talking to maritimesTV. Capt. Giannis Pateros, professor, talked about the simulation systems of the academy which are quite modern, as he underlined. Also, he added that the only limit is the imagination, so the graduates can meet the capabilities of each shipping company.
