IRI/The Marshall Islands Registry is proud to support Isalos.net and its educational initiative of Greece. Isalos.net aims to link the shipping community to the next generation, while also being a platform for providing information and experiences of the maritime industry and naval everyday life.
Isalos.net hosted four conferences in 2018, which attracted nearly 2,000 maritime academy students and officers. These conferences covered topics such as: the opportunities and challenges of the modern merchant marine, the challenges of the Bridge and Engine Room, health and everyday life on board vessel, and safety and risk management on board.
Captain Theodore Lalas, Fleet Operations Manager in the Registry’s Piraeus office, participated as a panelist at two of the conferences. He discussed the purpose, structure, and procedures of a ship registry. Captain Lalas also discussed the quality service that sets the RMI Registry apart, which has led to success in the Greek market and worldwide. Captain Lalas was joined on the panels by executives of the largest Greek shipping companies. Panel discussions were very engaging, with students asking more than 140 questions at the Athens conference.
The Registry is proud to work with educational initiatives in Greece and around the world to help educate students about opportunities in our industry.
