SAN DIEGO — Training Resources Ltd., Inc., announced the operations of Maritime Institute, Inc., of San Diego, would be merged into Training Resources’ San Diego facilities.
Training Resources CEO Dave Abrams, who recently acquired 50 percent of the company, will be the chief executive of the combined operation.
“Combining Maritime Institute’s great team with TRL’s world class facilities will allow us to serve the certified US Coast Guard training needs for all professional mariners. Maritime Institute has a stellar reputation for taking care of their students and because of that they were a great fit for our culture, and their courses fill a void in our offerings for lower tonnage ratings,” Abrams said.
Training Resources provides training experiences for professional mariners and has more than 50 approved Coast Guard courses to provide certifications in deck, engineering and safety requirements.
Maritime Institute, meanwhile, was founded in 1976 and was most recently owned by H.G. “Rags” and Kathy Laragione. The company also provided training to professional and recreational mariners.
