Changes and Challenges
ISNTC had its Quality Management System (ISO 9001:2000) recertified in December 29, 2008 by Germanischer Lloyd. Since then it has undergone a surveillance audit in December 2009 and surveillance/transition audit in December 2010 for the ISO9001:2008 version.
Last year, changes were seen in the growth of the organization in terms of number of employees, new positions, promotions and lateral transfers. In February 2011 the management decided to work for the reorganization of the Management System.
ISNTC has been operating according to ISO9001:2000 International Standards since it earned renewal accreditation by Germanischer Lloyd (GL) on December 30, 2008.
The organization’s QMS documentation has undergone process reviews, revisions &
additions to correct not only internal audit findings but also infractions on the system seen on its day-to-day operations.
The first 9 months of 2009 was indeed a challenging time for ISN-TC. Increased numbers of trainees and applicants for assessments were administered since the addition of training equipment and training areas.
The main reason for the increase of activity was due to the increasing number of ships in the ISN fleet and sister companies. Another reason is the increased training demand due to changes of International Regulations and improvement in ship’s equipment, hardware and software. ISNTC has now a total of 74 computers for instructors and trainees.
The Intership Navigation Training Center management convened in May 2008 to announce its intention of reorganization to cope with company’s growth and major changes in the Quality Management System (QMS).
The Managing Director decided that the training center’s QMS had to go through comprehensive revision in preparation for the ISO9001:200 Renewal Audit by the end of the year. Early in June 2008 a series of organization wide assemblies were held to reconstruct the center’s organizational chart and the four (4) required quality manuals.
