Mr. Gunaratna, an experienced lecturer in GMDSS, is using recently commissioned TRANSAS equipment to train FMA lectures to familiarize and enhance knowledge on this mandatory training for seafarers.



Both Capt. Cedric and Mr. Gunaratna have taken valuable time from their daily duties at Colombo International Nautical College (CINEC) to travel to Fiji and support FMA as well as the local seafarers.



Their time here is very much appreciated.
